Barnawartha has added further depth to its list, luring several former players back into the fold.
Stephen Bradshaw, Matt Robinson and Ryan Coates recently committed for this season.
They join high-profile recruits Mitch Exton and Ben Kunkel who the Tigers announced in November would be returning to the club from Benalla.
The Tigers have also signed Glenrowan midfielder Jordan Hansted who will add further depth to their midfield rotations.
Bradshaw returns from a stint at Federal in the Upper Murray league and will add to the Tigers big man stocks and help ease the workload on regular ruckman Adam Elias.

Robinson spent last year with Yackandandah but only managed two matches after being a regular senior player for the Tigers in 2018.
While Coates is a former promising Tiger junior who played a handful of senior matches as a teenager before crossing to Lavington thirds.
The slightly built forward had last season off.
Tigers coach Peter Cook said Thurgoona's superior depth last season proved critical when injuries hit in the middle of winter.
"I don't think you can have too much depth," Cook said.
"We copped our fair share of injuries last year and struggled to cover our losses when we had more than a few blokes missing.
"We were under pressure until the final couple of rounds to string together enough wins just to finish in the top-three.
"We got there in the end but the more depth you have got, it just gives you the luxury of resting blokes with niggles late in the season.
"Stephen, Matt and Ryan have all previously played seniors and will be given plenty of opportunities to cement a spot in the side this year."
The Tigers looks well poised to remain a flag threat after finishing runner-up last year.
Their only confirmed departures are Seamus Quinn and Ryan Lempa.
