The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Football Club Board have provided the following statement.
The Directors of the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs Football Club wish to confirm the resignations of the following:
- Ms Lynne Anderson resigned as Director and Chair;
- Mr John Ballesty resigned as Director and Deputy Chair and
- Mr Paul Dunn resigned as Director.
The four remaining Directors are Mr John Khoury, Mr Joe Thomas, Mr Peter Mortimer and Mr Adrian Turner.
Under the constitution of the Football Club, the remaining 4 directors are still able to form a quorum and the business of the Football Club will continue and not be affected.
The 4 Directors of the Football Club have met and voted to appoint Mr John Khoury as Chairman and Mr Joe Thomas as Deputy Chairman.
The Board will now undergo a process to appoint 3 new Directors to fill these 3 casual vacancies. Further details of this process will be unveiled and made known to the Football Club members over the coming weeks.
As you can appreciate this last month has been a tumultuous time for the Club both on and off the field and now is a time for healing as the Club strives to unify all stakeholders. Such unity is critical to enable the Club to fulfil its great potential.
The Board of the Football Club wishes to thank the 3 departing Directors who have stood down to avoid the EGM taking place and provide clear air to the Club. This has been a selfless decision made by the 3 directors in the best interests of the Club. The Board also wishes to thank the departing directors for their efforts and service since February 2018. Going forward the Board will reach out to all sponsors to thank them for their continued support and reassure them of the vital role they play in assisting our great Club.
This Board fully supports our new Head Coach Trent Barrett and Club Captain Josh Jackson heading into an exciting 2021 season and will provide all necessary support for success.
The Board also takes this opportunity to thank all Football Club Members and supporters for their continued dedication to the Club and thanks all Football Club staff for their ongoing effort in the day to day running of the Club.
