St Patrick's new co-coach is in career-best form.
The club announced Liam Scammell's three-year deal at Friday's presentation night.
The 31-year-old will share the role with previous coach James Kreutzberger, with the latter focusing on the junior program.
"I'm excited to work with James as we have similar coaching philosophies," Scammell said.
The son of Albury's former Olympic middle distance runner Pat, Scammell played three years at Lavington from 2010-11, striking three centuries and winning a premiership in his last season
He also represented Cricket Albury-Wodonga against Newcastle's Merewether at the SCG in February, 2013.
Scammell moved to Victorian Premier outfit Northcote for three years, striking a ton, sharing a record partnership with Australian rep Marcus Stoinis and winning the club MVP on debut.
The all-rounder also played one game for Victoria's Second XI against South Australia, taking three wickets for the game and facing Australia's top ODI leg-spinner Adam Zampa.
He was considered a bowling all-rounder then, but became more of a batting all-rounder in his five years with Melbourne University, where he won the club's best and fairest last season.
Scammell posted 277 runs at 31, batting anywhere between five and eight, while he snared 14 wickets at 27.
He proved a match-winner, restricting Camberwell to less than the six runs needed for victory from the final over and also hit the two required from the final ball against St Kilda.
Scammell was naturally chased by the majority of CAW's 11 provincial clubs, but opted for the Patties, where his father played lower grades prior to last season.
"I think it's just such a great family club, it's got a fantastic community connection, I think the connection to past players is really strong as well," he revealed.
"You don't see too many people leaving St Pat's."
Scammell boasts coaching experience, guiding Lavington a decade ago and Ajax in the Netherlands in 2018.
