A NEW-LOOK Boort will be under the glare Saturday night lights when it plays Sea Lake Nandaly Tigers in Saturday’s start to the Greenacres North Central Football League footy action.

New players for the Magpies include Brodie Leonard-Shannon at centre half-back, Darcy Hawker on a wing, and Braeden Deary at full back.
Another gun recruit is Matt Chisari who previously played senior footy with South Bendigo and TAC Cup under-18s with the Bendigo Pioneers.
Other players to watch for Boort include Ben Knight in the ruck and Mitchell Buchanan at centre half-forward.
A formidable Tigers line-up has Billy McInnes at full-forward, Bryce Delmenico in the centre, and ruckman Ryan O’Sullivan.
