Malone returns to the club after three years at the Tigers which finished on a high following this year’s victorious grand final day against Buninyong.

He won the Lake Wendouree best and fairest in its premiership year of 2010 and also captained the club.

President David Clifton admitted the club entered the back-end of the season with the knowledge former coach Gavin Webb was no certainty to continue beyond 2016and while a club never wantsto lose a man of Webb’s calibre,Lakers is extremely happy to welcomeone of its“favourite sons” back to the club.

Clifton said Malone’s man-management skills and astute knowledge of the game were the two things that stood out when it came to selecting him as the man for the job.

“We were half expecting Webby to leave,” Clifton said.

“He had indicated it was a distinct possibility.We were happy for Webby to go around again if that’s what he wanted, but it wasn’t in the end.

“We’ve had great coaches over the years so we’re rapt to get Tim back.

“He is a real peopleperson and that’ll be a real feature of his coaching.”

Clifton said Malone left the club on good terms andhad always keptclose contact with the club despite donning the yellow and black–often returning for functions.

Lake Wendouree finished minor premier in the 2016 Ballarat Football League season before being knocked out by Sunbury in the preliminary final.Clifton said Malone would take the reins of a side that was more than capable of pushing the top rungs of the BFL ladder once again and lookedforward to what the club hopes will be a successful 2017 campaign.

“We were cruelled by injury (in 2016), I think if everyone’s fit and we have an ounce of luck, Tim inherits a good list.We’ll have a couple of blokes to add in there as well, including himself who is a club best and fairest.”

Lakers will boast a young coaching group with LucasAnderson and Tom Littore announced as assistant coaches.
