YARRAWONGA has further strengthened its stocks with midfielder Jordan Daniel and ruckman Lachie Howe committing to the Pigeons.
Daniel has returned to the Ovens and Murray from home club Finley and will coach the thirds.
He takes over from premiership coach Marcus Cummins.
Daniel played for Finley last season after his father, Rob, was appointed coach of the Murray league club.
Howe, the brother of Hawthorn utility Daniel, has nominated Yarrawonga as his preferred club when not selected for VFL team Collingwood.
He managed 13 matches for Collingwood last season and spent the rest of the home and away series with Old Xaverians.
