2016 Muir Medal Round

June 16, 2016 by  

Annual Muir Medal Round – Queanbeyan v Ainslie

The Muir Medal was introduced in 2006 following the passing of Alan Muir. The Medal recognises the significant contribution of Alan to the Queanbeyan Tigers Club and his son Ian to the Ainslie Football Club.

They are recognised as the only father/son combination to have played 200 First Grade games, albeit for different clubs.

Alan provided over 60 years service to the Tigers organisation as a player/official and passionate supporter. His legacy is now recognised by all players with his “Eat Em Alive” signature.

Ian continues to provide the same service to the Ainslie Football Club as his late father did to the Tigers. He is currently their Football Club President.

The Muir Medal is played for once a year in First Grade (or in at NEAFL level while both clubs were in NEAFL). This year’s medal will be played for at Allinsure Park, Queanbeyan on Saturday, 18 June and will be presented at the Tigers Club after the game between 5.00pm and 6.00pm.

It’s hard to believe that February of this year marked 10 years since Alan Muir passed away. He is a legend always and is deeply missed.
