Lavington's two-time premiership player Nick Holman has retired.
Holman, who turns 33 next month, played in the club's 2005 flag and this year's stunning upset of Wangaratta.
"After 14 years of senior footy, I think it's time to pull up stumps and especially after a grand final win," he said.
"I think you'll get the same answer from any player, just pulling up sore week in, week out.
"It's probably been on my mind for two years."
Holman was playing just his seventh senior game in Lavington's famous after-the-siren grand final win over Myrtleford.
He also spent time at Jindera, North Albury and WAFL outfit Swan Districts.
"I had a few doubters in my mind, when I was at North Albury I thought I could be better, that's why I packed up shop for WA," he said.
"I got pretty close to getting in the senior side, I'm happy that I did go over there, it made me a better footballer."

He returned to North in 2014 and was involved in the biggest Morris Medal controversy the following season in 41 years.
Holman polled the most votes, but was ineligible after receiving a two-match ban for striking.
"There's no regrets, it would have been nice to have my name up there as a player that won it, at the end of the day I'll probably be remembered more than actually winning it, the bloke that lost it (laughs)," he said.

However, it shouldn't take away from a fine career as he was a clever player with an elite short kicking game, who also represented the league.
