Weir stands down
DAVID HESSE of Ballina is taking over from the long-serving Dudley Weir of Byron Bay as president of the Far North Coast Amateur Boxing Association, not from Arthur Maloney as reported in The Star yesterday.
Weir, who held the position for more than 20 years, has stood down due to ill health.
There were also a number of omissions from the report, which was contributed by a FNCABA official.
Arthur Maloney and his wife Mary have both been nominated for life memebrship, along with Barry Lamont of Grafton.
Arthur Maloney’s involvement with the FNCABA goes back to 1953 when he took up the sport, while Mary Maloney has been secretary-treasurer of the association for 13 years and continues in that role.
Lamont is the FNCABA head of referees and judges.
