NSW VB Blues Coach, Laurie Daley, will attend a civil ceremony tomorrow in his home town of Junee for what he says is “one of the proudest moments of his career”.
Junee Shire Council will tomorrow rename Willow Park to Laurie Daley Oval and the day will also serve as the official opening of the new broadcast box and canteen at the oval.
“Some of my fondest memories growing up in Junee involve that Oval,” Daley said.
“I have been lucky enough to achieve a lot thanks to the game of Rugby League but this is one of the proudest moments of my career.
“I would like to thank Junee Shire Council for the honour and I am really looking forward to catching up with everyone tomorrow.”
Following the renaming of the Oval, the Junee RLFC have organised a meet-and-greet at the Junee Ex-Services Memorial Club from 1pm to 3pm with special guests including Daley, Graham Annesley, MP, Minister for Sport and Recreation, NSWRL General Manager, Geoff Carr, NSW VB Blues Assistant Coach, Trent Barrett and Blues legend Paul Langmack.
