Lavington midfield ace Marty Brennan has signed with Werribee.
After training with the Tigers before the Christmas break, Brennan has decided to test himself at the higher level of VFL.
The reigning Panthers best and fairest winner is set to be reunited with premiership team-mates Shaun Mannagh and Aidan Johnson who have also committed to Werribee for this season.
Former Panther coach James Saker is a defensive coach with the Tigers who Brennan played under at Lavington Sports Ground when he was first recruited from Rutherglen.

Brennan travelled from the Border to attend training before Christmas but recently located to Geelong and is looking forward to the challenge of playing VFL.
"It should be good fun, I can't wait to get settled in and have some fun at the same time," Brennan said.
"Now is probably the perfect time for me to have a crack at the VFL, I've matured now and you're always going to regret not having a go at a higher level, so I thought I'd give it a shot.
"It makes it very easy to fit into a club when you know a few guys already, there are guys here that I played with and against in the Ovens and Murray.
"James Saker was the coach for my first two years at Lavington and was the one that got me there and now he's here which is great."
