PRESIDENT Michael Shulman says Port Melbourne will hold off on contract talks with coach Gary Ayres until the end of the season.

Shulman said Ayres was keen to discuss his future “sooner rather than later’’ but the club believed negotiations should start when Port’s season finished.

Ayres signed a one-year deal a few weeks after the Borough’s stunning 2017 premiership.

TWO weeks ago Isaac “Izzy’’ Conway was consoling his sister Sophie after she suffered an ACL injury while training with Richmond’s VFL Women’s team.

She was to make her debut for the Tigers the following day.

Now the 19-year-old Brisbane player must sit out the 2019 AFL W season.

ISAAC CONWAY DEDICATES SEASON TO LATE MOTHER

Last Sunday the fickle finger of fortune dealt the Conways another blow when powerful Port Melbourne onballer Izzy sustained the same knee injury, cutting short what was shaping as a best-and-fairest year for the Borough.

Conway hobbled off the ground in the second quarter against Box Hill Hawks at the City Oval. Scans the following day confirmed he had ruptured the ACL in his left knee.

IT has been booted off its ground for the third time season, but Port Melbourne Football Club is likely to get some good news about North Port Oval next week.

Port Phillip Council this afternoon confirmed it was trying to bring forward the planned reconstruction of the playing surface to this year.

If funding for the multimillion-dollar project is approved at a meeting on June 20 the works will start at the end of the season.

GEELONG has produced its most complete performance of the VFL season-to-date with a clinical 100-point victory over North Melbourne in the curtain raiser.

Lachie Henderson, Cam Guthrie and Scott Selwood all got through the game and had an impact as the Cats pushed their top four credentials with a 21.11 (137) to 5.7 (37) victory at GMHBA Stadium.

But there are concerns over forward Stewart Crameri after he was taken to hospital before the game had finished with an eye injury.

Crameri left the ground in the second quarter after receiving a scratch to the eye in a marking contest and went straight into the rooms for treatment. He had kicked three goals at that stage.
