David Klemmer speaks with bulldogs.com.au to discuss his new contract that will see him extend his stay at Belmore until 2020.
Klemmer was recruited to the club at 15, playing all his grade rugby league for the Bulldogs.
“The Bulldogs is everything to me,” Klemmer said. “I grew up supporting the club and since I first signed here, it has been the only thing I have known.
“I never really wanted to go anywhere else and to be here, surrounded and playing with these great guys, is where I want to be.”
Chief Executive Raelene Castle is glad to see both Klemmer and Mbye decide to stay at the club.
“Both of these young athletes have now established themselves as regular first graders,” Castle said. “To go with that, they are both outstanding role models to all young kids who commit to that by doing an enormous amount of work in the community.
“We believe that the promising start that they have both had to their NRL career can continue and they will be key members of the playing squad for many years to come.”
Coach Des Hasler is also pleased that Klemmer and Mbye will remain at Belmore.
“I’m pleased that both of these young men have decided to stay with the club,” Hasler said. “It will ensure the future of this club is in good shape on the field.”
