THE Loddon Valley Football League will get a double dose of Alan Didak, with the Collingwood premiership player to play for YCW next week.
Didak will line up for the Eagles in their round five clash with Bridgewater at Backhaus Oval on May 10.
Next week's game for the Eagles will be the first of two appearances in six weeks in the LVFL for Didak, who will also play for Marong against Newbridge on June 14.
While Marong was the first LVFL club to announce Didak, YCW president Chris Garlick said the Eagles had the 31-year-old who played 218 games for the Magpies locked in for months.
Garlick believes Didak's appearance next week will be a positive for both the Eagles and Marong next month.
"I think it could be a real positive if he goes well next week and people really enjoy the day, they may want to go and see him again for Marong," Garlick said.
"And those who don't get to see him on May 10 will get a second opportunity next month to see him."
As part of Didak's match for the Eagles, he will be the guest at a pre-game breakfast from 10am to 11.30am at the Golden Square Hotel.
Tickets cost $60 and are available from Lisa Roberts on 0438 705 343 or by logging onto the YCW website.
Meanwhile, the Eagles also have Melbourne Vixens and Australian netballer Madison Robinson presenting a life training session to junior footballers and netballers at Backhaus Oval on Thursday, May 15.
Robinson is a V/Line life training ambassador and shares experiences on challenges commonly faced by young people growing up in the country.
