Wangaratta has signed league and cup-winning coach Daniel Vasilevski for a second season.
The former A-League player led the Devils to the perfect season in 2019, winning every piece of silverware the AWFA has to offer.
Vasilevski relocated to the Border last year as Murray United's marquee signing, but had his NPL career cut short by injury, before taking on the top job at Wangaratta.
The 38-year-old isn't expecting anything less from his side in 2020.

"I always wanted to (coach again), I just had to sit down and have a proper chat about it and what lies ahead," Vasilevski said.
"I'm super excited. Last season was very successful, we won all there was to win.
"I want to focus on playing better football, scoring more goals, conceding less and winning the (league and cup) double again.
"We're going to gear up for a pretty big pre-season and possibly strengthen up our squad with a few players."
Vasilevski believes Wangaratta set a new benchmark this season and is expecting rival clubs to step up even further in 2020.
While his body didn't allow him many opportunities to have an impact on the park, the veteran midfielder will never say never.
"I'll give pre-season a run with the boys because it's always fun when you join in," he said.
"If my body feels okay, of course I'll register myself as a player, but I think I'll be focusing more on coaching.
"We'll probably kick-off pre-season mid-November. We'd like to catch up before that and we'll start training for about four weeks, have a week or two off after Christmas and New Year and really get stuck into it once we come back in January.
"It's good to get that four weeks in before the New Year, because if you leave it until January, your players can come back a little worse for wear."
Vasilevski is expecting to commence talks with potential recruits in the coming weeks.
