Moruya League cancelled however Weyman Statues to be officially unveiled 3pm Saturday

Moruya Sharks RLFC advise:

Unfortunately council has been left with no choice but to close the grounds so this weekends matches for the Ack Weyman Memorial Shield against Boorowa won’t be going ahead.

However, we will still be unveiling both statues so we encourage EVERYONE to get down to Ack Weyman Oval about 3pm this Saturday. There will be bar and canteen facilities to recognise two of Moruya’s favourite sons and to pay tribute to the Weyman family ************************************** The Memorial Sculpture Committee, a subcommittee of the Moruya Rugby League Football Club, has commissioned a bronze statue of Ack Weyman as a companion piece to the existing bronze of local footballer Mick Weyman, currently situated in Russ Martin Park, Moruya. Ack Weyman was a community member of standing and an advocate for rugby league in Moruya, who passed away late in 2019. Ack was a driving force behind establishing the rugby league oval at the Moruya Showground which was named in his honour. The existing Mick Weyman sculpture was submitted to the PAAC in 2011. At this time, the PAAC recommended installation at the Moruya Showground. The Moruya Chamber of Commerce preferred a more prominent site and Russ Martin Park was chosen as an interim location, with a view that the sculpture be relocated to the showground at a later date. With the death of Ack Weyman in 2019 and the new commission, the Memorial Sculpture Committee believed it to be an ideal time to relocate the original piece. The newly commissioned piece is by the same local artist, Terry Fuller, who created the existing Mick Weyman bronze.
