IT HAS been a strange old ride for the Ballarat Red Devils in the lead-up to the 2016 campaign.
But the off-field dramas will be swept aside on Saturday when the club’s National Premier Leagues Victoria 2 season gets underway at Morshead Park.
The Ballarat boys had their final training run on Thursday night in preparation for the round one home clash with Moreland Zebras.
Manager James Robinson, who quit the post in November last year only to sensationally return to the role last month, has revealed the squad that will take the club through the 28 rounds this season.
The list of 20 includes a handful of additions to the team that finished fourth under Robinson in the west division standings last year.
