Steve Mortimer Statement

As an acknowledgement that I have breached my obligations as a Director of the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs, I have today resigned from the Board.

I also believe my resignation allows Des, the club and the board to work together to improve our results and to get on with the job of winning the 2017 premiership.

I’ve served on the Board for the past three years and in that time believe and hope that I’ve made a positive contribution to our great Club.

Every time I have offered my opinion, it has always been with the club’s best wishes at heart.

I’ve expressed my opinions to Des directly - specifically my concern on the style of football we play and what the Bulldog culture is all about.

I have also offered him my apologies for comments made in the media.

I hope as a result we can find the missing ingredients to achieve the success we crave.

I wish Dessie all the best for 2017 and beyond and want to see the hard work, investment and effort everyone at the club has put in reap the rewards it deserves.

I will always love the Bulldogs and am proud to remain involved with the Club’s Alumni Mentoring Programme.

To Ray, Raelene and the board I will assist in any-way I can.

Steve Mortimer
