The Centennial Season just got more exciting, with Aiden Grace the latest recruit to fly into The Nest!
Previously from Clarence, Aiden led the Geelong Football League's goal kicking last season, booting 59 majors for runners up St Mary's.
That form earned him three call-ups to the Geelong VFL team and he produced a classy 4-goal performance against minor premiers Richmond.
Senior Club Coach Paul Kennedy is excited about having a player of Aiden's calibre at the club for the Centennial Year and beyond.
"Gracey is an outstanding talent but he's also a great example for his teammates with the way he goes about training, which is impressive for a 21-year-old," Kennedy said.
"He still has aspirations to play at the highest level, as a club we fully support that and we look forward to the big impact he's going to have for Glenorchy in the TSL."
Grace's first home outing at KGV is on Saturday 6 April in the Heritage Game against North Hobart.

The Glenorchy District Football Club is proud to announce Peter Barwick as TSLW Senior Coach for the 2019 season, taking the reins from premiership coach Craig Grace.
Peter, a Playing Life Member of the club and GDFCW Assistant Coach in recent years, commented:
“It’s a great honour to head up the panel as senior coach in the club's Centennial Year. It’s also a privilege and a challenge to take over from Craig, who has done an amazing job, not only for the Glenorchy Football Club, but for women’s football in general."
Peter will head up a Coaching Panel of (from left to right) Garry Barwick (midfield coach), Dean Webster (backs coach) and Sandy Eaton (forwards coach).
In a first for the club, the team’s opening game will be on ANZAC Day under lights at KGV, including the unfurling of the 2018 Premiership Flag.
