THE Picola District Football League has confirmed Katandra and Tungamah will re-join its competition for the 2021 season.

Their moves were confirmed on Wednesday night and will leave the Murray League with 12 clubs while the PDFNL has 15.

"The PDFNL would like to acknowledge and thank all parties, particularly AFLGM’s Jamie Macri for their support and assistance,” a statement from the PDFNL said.

"Both clubs are valued past members of the PDFNL and all parties look forward to the partnerships continuing.”

United lose classy forward

ECHUCA United has lot another key part of its make-up after Nick Denahy departed the nest.

Denahy, who has previously been used as a high half-forward, has joined Goulburn Valley League powerhouse Kyabram for the 2021 season.

Bombers co-coach Brad Edwards said he was excited to have added the 2018 United best and fairest to the playing group.

“He’s a very athletic type and we are naturally pleased he has decided to join us,” he said.

“The good part is that he will be able to train with us.

“We have spoken to about 70 per cent of the players and they are all on board at this stage for next season.”

Denahy's departure comes hot on the heels of fellow United players Farran Priest and Phil Hubbard laving the Eagles's nest for Elmore in 2021.

Moama continue to announce re-signings

“'Dogga" has excellent decision making skills under pressure, as though time is standing still.”
