JUSTIN Koschitzke is hoping to play about 10 matches in his homecoming at Brock-Burrumnext season.

The former St Kilda player will return to the Hume league for the first time since he played under Brocklesby coach Gavin Adams in 1999.

Koschitzke joined the Murray Bushrangers the following season.

While many expected good mates Koschitzke and new Brock-Burrumcoach Kade Stevens to finish theircareers together, Stevens said it was never totallyplanned.

“It’s been the talk and something people assumed would happen andwe sort of denied it, but playing with himagain was inviting,” Stevens said.

“Work commitments will be his No.1 priority in Melbourne as they should be for everyone so he’ll play as much as he can.

“He’s been fortunate enough to find some clients down this way.

“It’s great he’s going to have a kick again.

“Hopefully we get a fair few games out of him.”

Stevens and Koschitzke have played the last three seasons together at Lavington with the forward kicking 31, 58 and 40 goals.

Another Panther,Luke McLellan, is set to follow the duo to the reigning premier.

Brock-Burrum will be chasing a hat-trick of flags with Dean Murphy (Melbourne) and Kylin Morey (Beechworth) the only confirmed departures.

Stevens’ signing leaves only two Hume leagueclubs –Henty and CDHBU –without senior coaches for next season.
