Echuca Football Netball Club heads into the 2017 season with plenty of optimism.
Senior coach Andrew Briggs and A grade coach Casey Frame were poised for a big year.
Riverine Herald's Alex Mitchell checked in with the coaches for their thoughts on how the year is shaping up at Victoria Park.
Briggs looked to the youth of the team to stand up at leaders in 2017 and was eager to see the end of a long preseason with the first game on April 15.
Frame said local recruits would help bring about some success and could take a lot of positives from preseason hit outs.
