Former Launceston utility Ethan Conway could make his Glenorchy debut as early as this weekend, says coach Paul Kennedy.
Conway played the first nine games of last year's TSL season before finishing the year in development league.
An off-season move to NTFA heavyweight St Pats ended before it began when the Saints opted not to take part in the NTFA Shield, leaving the 20-year-old to kick six goals in a one-off game for Old Launcestonians.

It would be his final Northern appearance of the season with the talented all-rounder signing up for Glenorchy's cricket and football clubs in the space of a month.
He has since impressed with three goals in three development league outings.
"Ethan's been great, he's been a really good addition to our club," Kennedy said.
"He's a good young man and we've found some work with one of the local high schools we partner with and they've raved about him, they've said he's had a huge positive impact - particularly on the young men at their school.
"We're really pleased that Ethan moved down here and chose our club and he's one who's probably in the mix to make his debut for us.
"We haven't finalised a team yet but he's been going about things the right way - he's been training hard, he comes down and watches our youth teams play so it's been great having him on board.
"Hopefully if not this week, then soon he'll be in that senior team and helping us there as well."
Conway is one of three ex-Blues on Glenorchy's list alongside Sam Rundle and Tom Cleary.
The Magpies will meet North Launceston at KGV at 2.30pm on Saturday.
