Port Fairy defender Izaac Dwyer is hanging up the boots and stepping away from football.
Dwyer, who has played 59 senior Hampden league games for the Seagulls, said he wasn’t returning to the football field after a clearance to Warrnambool and District league powerhouse Old Collegians was denied.
It’s nothing personal... I’m just not enjoying my footy.Izaac Dwyer
The 24-year-old is looking to set himself up as a farmer in northern Victoria and said he “no longer enjoyed his footy” and wanted to spend his last few weeks in the region with close friends Tom Lambevski and Les Lynch.
Dwyer stressed there was no bad blood between him and the club.
“It’s nothing personal, there is nothing wrong behind the scenes I’m just not enjoying my footy,” he said.
“I have a new perspective that there is plenty more things that come before football for me and I elected to pursue different endeavours away from footy.
“I still love the club as I have been a junior and senior player at the club but it’s time for me to move on.”
Port Fairy president Ashley King said Dwyer was still a contracted player with the club and that his services were still needed in the Seagulls’ senior side. Dwyer has played a variety of roles for the club and is seen as an important option in the Seagulls’ quest to end a 60-year premiership drought.
