Goodridge has been named on the bench for the Eastern Rovers' first round match against Beaconsfield on Sunday.
Eastern Rovers is a new look team which has brought together members of 2006's most struggling teams : Eastern Districts Superrules, East Ringwood Vets and Mitcham Vets. Rovers coach, Nick Uren, has found himself in the surprising position of having 40 names to choose from for each game this year. This means that there will be a compulsory turnover of about a dozen names for each game to ensure everybody has a run.
Goodridge was excited about the prospect of getting a run and put his first week selection down to "turning up to training every single week."
