Melbourne Victory is strengthening its ties to the Border with intentions to set up camp in the region.
The A-League giants ran sessions at La Trobe Wodonga earlier in the year and were impressed with the quality in the Murray United and AWFA ranks.
Victory returns next Monday and Tuesday to scout for more talent.
Murray technical director Adam Carty admitted it's the first time an A-League club has come to the region to actively look for players, rather than them travelling to Melbourne or Sydney.

"They came looking at under-11s, 12s and 13s players for their academy sides and have decided to also include 14s and 15s," Carty said.
"With the introduction of Murray into the top tier of national football, we have been given the opportunity for A-League clubs to start watching younger players in a high-quality environment."
The sessions at La Trobe run from 10am to 3pm on both days for players aged 10 to 15 years.
