Wodonga premiership player Dan Dixon has signed as coach of CAW District club Baranduda for the next two seasons.
The reliable Bulldog all-rounder will bring vast experience to the role after an excellent first grade career at provincial level.
Baranduda president Daniel Hussey believes the addition of Dixon to the coaching ranks could be the missing piece to the puzzle.
"We've worked pretty hard to secure someone with that sort of profile," Hussey said.
"It's been hard with the district banner to try to get someone from the provincial side to come over.
"For a few years, we've been very competitive in all grades and we need to go that extra step.
"We wanted someone with experience to try and get that positive culture into the club and hopefully make us that little bit stronger.

"We want to get someone in there to teach us how to not so much win the game, but help us in those crucial moments under pressure.
"Obviously with Dan's experience, he'll be able to pass on some of that wisdom and advice."
Outgoing coach Vince Moran will remain at the club in a playing capacity after three seasons in the job.
"Vince has been a very committed player for six or seven seasons and he's got a young family and a business that is quite demanding," Hussey added.
The Rangers have already held a host of training sessions at the Albury Wodonga Regional Cricket Hub and are excited for the season.
