o.k. - most likely you will be able to download the full interview but just in case you can't - this is a brief summary.

- Gary very confident with how the side has shaped up with this seaons goal being top 8 and hopefully top 4. Feels like Port Melbourne are ready. Club wants to use last years loss to Box Hill as motivation to spur them on this season.

 

- Support staff, coaches all of great ability and some good people working at the club.

- The good quanity of VFL players going on to play AFL does not suprise as the standard of the competition is strong with some great players.

- One lucky member will win 4 tickets to a presidents lunch this season. Membership is sitting at 878 at present with a goal of 1500 for this season.

One of the last things Gary said was that he wants to write more Port Melbourne club history before he retires. <- Was this a hint that the end may be near ? - I perosonlly think he has the drive and enjoyment out of coaching that would make him want to go on for years to come.

 

Gary Ayres will also be on tomorrow from 2 - 3 p.m. on SEN.

Appreciate you posting that up MegA.. Managed to catch the interview.  I don't thank that bloke Sam (McLure?) has much knowledge of the VFA/VFL.

Shame Mark Fine isn't still on that station.  Had some history with the comp which great.

There was mate. The following day (yesterday) their was a hours long interview with Gary Ayres discussing all things Borough including the challenges faced in the current climate, membership, recruitments and also had some call back. Hopefully it is uploaded on one of the Port Melbourne platforms for those who missed it.
