Former St Kilda forward Arryn Siposs is set to pull the boots back at the local football level after venturing to the Southern Football Netball League for the 2024 season.

The 31-year-old has signed with Dingley for the season ahead, having arrived back in Australia since leaving the NFL as a punter for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Siposs featured in the Super Bowl last year for the American franchise, who he spent two years with before being waived. Siposs was also listed as a practice squad member with the Detroit Lions.

Since returning down under, Siposs has joined Hawthorn as a development coach to mark his return to the top flight of Aussie Rules.

The former St Kilda player has also made a move to play at the grassroots level, signing with SFNL club Dingley.

The Dingoes announced the acquisition of Siposs on Monday night.

Siposs played 28 games over five seasons for the Saints, who delisted the long-kicking forward after he didn't feature in the 2015 campaign. He booted 22 goals during his time in the red, white and black, averaging 11.11 disposals per game in the AFL.

The veteran forward brings newfound experience to the local level, joining Dingley following their third-place finish in Division 1 of the SFNL.

The Dingoes fell out of the finals race with successive losses last year, losing to Cranbourne and Port Melbourne to see their 2023 season come to an end.

Dingley will open their 2024 season on April 6 against Springvale Districts.
