Pratten Park Magpies are saddened to advise that Wayne ‘Bugsy’ Merry passed away on Friday 4 November from cancer.
Bugs was aged early to mid 70’s.
A talented Centre and Utility back, Bugs played 65 games for our Club in all grades including 17 1st Grade games during the years 1970 to 1972.
His teammates recall him playing well above his weight and knew how to score a try...11 in fact during his 3 seasons with the Magpies.
Bugsy also had the distinction of representing NSW Police team many times in the 70's & 80's.
The Pratten Park Magpies Memorial Sash has been presented to Wayne's Family
RIP Wayne 'Bugsy' Merry.
