Wodonga defender Marshal Macauley will return to Coolamon next season.
The 26-year-old crossed from the Riverina league outfit to test himself at Ovens and Murray level, but battled injury throughout.
He managed just 11 senior games, but was named in the struggling Bulldogs' best on three occasions.

In a post on Coolamon's Facebook page, Macauley said he enjoyed his time with Wodonga, but the uncertainty of where he might be required for work placement to complete his university degree brought him back to the Hoppers, where he will have more flexibility around training and playing.
Shaun Flanigan has also departed Wodonga after signing as an assistant coach with Wagga Tigers.
