Inspirational Shinboner Ben Cunnington made a welcome visit to Arden Street on Wednesday following his latest round of invasive chemotherapy treatments.

The 30-year-old announced in November last year that he would, once again, be seeking treatment after a second testicular cancer tumour was located.

The hard-as-nails leader made an entrance onto the track this morning alongside teammates and told the club's media department that he was in good spirits following the nine-week course of medication.

"I've finished my course of treatment and was feeling well enough to drop in and say g'day," Cunnington said.

"I've had such amazing support from everyone at the club and I can't thank them enough."

Although upbeat and present, North Melbourne is still yet to announce a date for the dual Syd Barker medallist's return.

Cunnington has played 227 games since debuting for the Roos in Round 5, 2010.

The midfielder finished second in the club's best and fairest count last season after averaging 26.8 disposals and 4.9 tackles across his 15 appearances.

Upon return, the 'Cobden Cannonball' will be tasked with leading a youthful coalface group comprised of Luke Davies-Uniake, Jy Simpkin, Tom Powell, Will Phillips and Jason Horne-Francis.

North Melbourne are set to face both Melbourne and Sydney during pre-season clashes this month ahead of their season opener against Hawthorn scheduled for Sunday, March 20 at the MCG.
