Raminai conveys his condolences

first_imgRugby League Papua New Guinea has lost an asset to sport, agriculture and business following the passing of John Nightingale this week. That was how Vice-Minister for Sport and Member for Kagua-Erave Wesley Raminai described the late John Nightingale when sending his condolences to the family and friends of the man who was affectionately known as ‘Papa Guria’. Raminai, when extending his condolence on behalf of the Government to the Nightingale family at this time of sadness, said Nightingale’s contribution to the Agmark Gurias rugby league franchise in PNG’s premier competition, Digicel Cup, was an example of excellence in sports. “Agmark Guria is a renowned sporting entity that has set some high benchmarks and the late John Nightingale is one of the main reasons behind this. “There are many young men who owe their sporting careers to him. Agmark Gurias approach to sport in terms of professionalism is on another level and aside from the top quality football they produce, the welfare of players and officials is also appropriately covered, providing employment aside from just match payments. “It is because of the vision and commitment of men like John Nightingale that Agmark Gurias has won premierships, is a regular finals contest in the Digicel Cup finals and is always a very tough side to beat during the regular season, year in year out, a consistent football franchise when it comes to top quality. “His (Nightingale) contribution to rugby league was not only confined to Gurias but the PNG Rugby Football League would have appreciated his contribution to helping out with programs like the Hunters and others.” Raminai said that he found Nightingale to be someone who has really blended in very well into the PNG culture and will be dearly missed not just by his family and friends but many others whose lives he touched. The Nightingale family’s contribution was not only restricted to rugby league but other sports as well, especially golf through his wife Darrie who represented Papua New Guinea on a number of occasions.last_img read more
