One of NTFA division one's top names will make the move to premier division for the 2022 season.
East Coast best and fairest Ethan Goldfinch will rejoin his junior side Bracknell to play at the NTFA's highest level with the reigning premiers.
Having been a key cog in the Swans' wheel over his three seasons at the club, the 24-year-old said telling his teammates of the move wasn't easy.
"It was probably one of the hardest decisions I've had to make with footy," he said.
"I've got some really good mates down there [at East Coast] so it was really tough.
"It's been unreal down there, it's somewhere I want to go back to at some stage in my career."
Leaving the Swans a premiership player, Goldfinch thanked former coach Ned Hyland, president Stephen 'Reg' Walley and Robert 'Booza' Breen as well as close mates Lewis Ritchie and the Child brothers [Nick and Sam] for their companionship.
Having played at Bracknell in 2012 as a 15-year-old in the under-19s before heading to North Launceston the following year, Goldfinch will link back up with Redlegs co-captains and schoolmates Jack Dyer and Will Fisher, a pair of connections that made the move a reality.
His new coach Corry Goodluck described the recruit as "a dominant left-footer off the half-back flank or through the midfield" and is looking forward to taking the field with him next year.
"He's definitely going to be a good asset to our club, he's a great clubman and a terrific person on and off the field," he said.
"I haven't played much football with him myself but his professionalism is second to none and he wants to better himself by playing in a higher league in the premier division.
"It's going to be good having him on our list at Bracknell and hopefully with a good pre-season and commitment level, he can fit into our team really well."
Goldfinch's move to the Redlegs sees him join a star-studded list of Bracknell recruits in the past two seasons, featuring the likes of Josh Holland, Sam Douglas, Matty Dennis, Sam Borlini and Nick Mitchell.
