Port Fairy midfielder Josh Dwyer is preparing to ditch the Seagulls’ purple for Hampden league’s bottle green for Saturday’s under 18 interleague battle against Bendigo.

“It should be a good day,” Dwyer told The Standard at training on Thursday night.

“It will be good to get out there with a bunch of lads I probably haven't played footy with yet.”

Dwyer was named on the wing for the Ben van de Camp-led team. 

The Seagulls youngster said it had been rewarding to train with some of the best players in the competition in his age group.

He said there had been a great feeling at the group’s four training sessions.

Dwyer, who has played three games with Port Fairy’s senior side, said van de Camp had focused on utilising the team’s speed.

“He has been trying to get us to get our running game going because we will be on the big Reid Oval ground on Saturday,” he said.
