With so much uncertainty surrounding the start of the NPL2 season, the visa players were left with a couple of options, but Calvin Roddie has decided he will stick with Yoogali SC.
Roddie arrived in Australia from Scotland in early February, Calvin alongside brother Liam have been settling into life in Griffith.
The 24-year-old Scottish winger brings plenty of talent into the Yoogali set up having played professionally in both Scotland and Norway but was coming into this season after sustaining an injury which saw him miss most of the season in Norway.
"I went back home to Scotland, and I knew I wasn't going to be able to play properly for a good few months, and it was cold back home, and we fancied a change," he said.
"I knew a few people who had played in Australia, and I spoke to them, and they gave me a few contacts to speak to about teams over here, and I got passed on to Luke (Santolin)."
Roddie said it was the commitment to not just himself but also to his girlfriend and brother which attracted him to come and play for Yoogali SC.
"I had a few other teams to choose from and maybe at a higher level but Luke was willing to help me, my girlfriend and my brother so I found that more appealing," he said.
Now the Scotsman will be returning the favour planning to stay in Australia despite the lack of football due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"I did see that the UK has said that everyone in Australia from the UK should head home, but luckily we both still have our jobs and the club is still helping us out with our accommodation," he said.
"If we didn't have a job, we would probably head home because there is no point in being here but since we are still earning money and it (football season) hasn't been cancelled yet."
While the two preseason games against the Goulburn Suns and Monaro Panthers didn't end with positive results, Roddie believes the side will be strong.
"They have a good togetherness, and I think that if we get going with training and games soon, I think we could do quite well," he said. "The few games we played in preseason weren't great, but we were just trying to get the boys together.
"If we can get the boys together and get past the stage we are at I think we might do quite well."
