There's a real sense of belief around Diamond Park in 2020.
After missing the cup finals the past four seasons, Diamonds have welcomed a host of players, new and old, in a bid to return to the top eight.
Dylan Nhansana, Dylan Gavel and Jason Colombera have reunited with the club after a season away at Boomers, while stars from the club's 2011, 2013 and 2014 cup triumphs, Dan Millynn and Jedd Gvozdenovic, are out of retirement.
Diamonds experienced a huge hiatus last season with virtually its entire senior group departing to rival clubs, namely Boomers, Wangaratta and Melrose, but Nhansana is confident they're getting back on track.
"When I first started training with the seniors at around 14 or 15, the club was going through a similar period where they hadn't made finals for a few years," Nhansana, 22, said.
"We had a lot of people leave and changes to coaching staff, but we ended up winning the 2011 grand final and things changed for a few years.
"They had a good young group here last year, but they sort of lacked that leadership from the older players that have been there and won things.

"It's potentially my last year playing (due to university commitments), so I wanted to come back and spend my last year where I grew up and try to help them make finals and really push for something.
"When I was 15-16 coming through, Dan (Millynn) and his dad (Paul) were a big part of it and that was when we were winning grand finals.
"Having Daniel Griffin coaching as well, he's a close friend of mine and Steve Currie, who's lending a hand. Those guys were around when I was younger, so it definitely helped (my decision) having them back."
Nhansana took plenty from his year under the classy Andrew Grove at Boomers.
"Boomers are a great team, there's great coaches there and I've never learnt so much in one year, but it's hard to go away from a club you grew up playing for when they need help," he said.
"I've come back looking at things a lot differently and it gave me a lot to work on."
Rising star Rhyce Hore has crossed from Murray United, McKinley Page has signed from St Pats, while young goalkeeper Nelson Burns joins from Albury City.
Dylan Mountain is another new face, having relocated for work with the army from the Sunshine Coast.
"I came down here one afternoon and a few of the young lads were having a kick around, so I asked them where I should play because I was keen and they said 'come play here'," he said.
"I like to play anywhere up front, attacking mid, left wing, right wing or striker."
Mountain, 19, is recovering from a broken foot and hopes to debut in April.
