At 42, Kylie Murphy is set to make her return to Ovens and Murray netball.
Murphy, who celebrates her birthday today, last played at the Bulldogs in 2018 and will take to the court for the club's B-grade side this season.
An ACL injury in 2019 and a year away from the game hasn't deterred the skilled goal shooter, who last played and coached at Yackandandah in the Tallangatta and District league.
Daughter Lizzy will also play for the Bulldogs in the under-17s this season.
Murphy said she's looking forward to rejoining the young club, as they look to rebuild.
"It's not about me this year, it's just about working alongside the young group of girls," she said.
"Wodonga are such a young side and it's been really good to be there as a senior player and just help out.

"A couple of the young girls have come up and asked me if I would help them individually, so that's nice.
"It's good to have Lizzy there and she was happy for me to do it."
Despite an ACL and Achilles injury during her netball career, Murphy said injuries aren't something that she spends too much time thinking about.
"COVID gave me the opportunity to do a lot of rehab after my knee, where as if I was chasing children around to different sports I might not have had the time to put into my rehab," she said.
Wodonga will take on Corowa-Rutherglen for round one of the season next month.
Murphy said the club is showing positive signs.
"It's very exciting."
