HEATHMERE has identified the upcoming season as a chance to rebuild the club, both on and off the field.
It is hoped that the building blocks are in place for the side to produce a strong season after 2013 concluded with just two wins.
Key areas of improvement have been identified as improving disposal efficiency and shoring up a leaky defence as the club moves forward into a more promising season.
The list has undergone slight changes, with a view on recruiting for the engine room formulating the key focus over the summer.
Joel Wylie will join Tim and Matt Huppatz as the key inclusions to the list with all three set to primarily play through the middle of the ground.
Keith Boots becomes another valuable inclusion for Heathmere with the hopes he can consolidate their defensive structures.
Boots will be joined by key defender Andre Wallace, who has enjoyed a strong pre-season on the track and looks set for a year of improvement.
Rhys Gadsden will be the assistant coach for 2014, while Matt Dodson will add some much needed depth to the playing list.
Nick Guthridge has moved back from Mackay and new import Jacob Royers will be a handy addition.
The summer hasn’t been without its downfalls after the loss of Bob Wilson, Paul Young and Joel Dwyer.
