Former Collingwood midfielder Callum Brown has linked up with former club Marcellin Old Collegians for the 2023 VAFA season, with the father-son ex-Magpie to share his duties with the Eagles and VFL club Box Hill this year.
Brown signed with Box Hill shortly after his delisting at Collingwood, where he played 70 games across six seasons after following in his father Gavin's footsteps to pull on the black and white.
The 24-year-old was also trialled as a potential Supplemental Selection Period signing for Hawthorn during the AFL pre-season, however the Hawks opted to keep their last list spot open for the season ahead.
The list call would see Brown left to ply his trade for Box Hill instead, while also featuring for Marcellin when available.
The club unveiled their latest signing on Sunday, with the Eagles expressing their delight in welcoming Brown back to the club.
"The Marcellin Old Collegians Football Club is thrilled to announce that Callum Brown has committed to the club for the 2023 season," a club statement read.
"Cal is excited for the opportunity to take the field again with his best mates for the first time since the AGSV Grand Final in 2016, a thrilling game of football featuring many of our current Senior list.
"Although his time on the field will be limited due to his VFL commitments, his skill, experience and personality will be a significant asset to our football club and we are excited to welcome him into the Eagles community.
"We are very excited for this announcement on the eve of the 2023 season and we look forward to the wider Marcellin community welcoming Cal with open arms."
Brown averaged 13.33 disposals, 3.29 tackles and 2.21 marks per game in his AFL career.
Marcellin finished eighth on the Premier C Men's ladder in 2022, registering seven wins and 13 losses for the season.
