The Bulldogs have continued to sign key players as they move towards the start of the 2021 season, with talented back-rower Matt Doorey extending his time at Belmore until the end of the 2022 season.
Doorey, who was previously on a development contract, will now step up as a full-time member of the club's Top 30 squad.
Doorey is seen as one of the best young talents around, having progressed through the Bulldogs Jersey Flegg and NSW Cup sides. In addition, he represented the Australian Schoolboys side in 2018 and the NSW U20's team in 2019.
The hard-running 20 year-old scored a try on his NRL debut last season against the Wests Tigers in Round 14, before finishing the season with two tries from his five appearances.
A dream debut for Doorey
Bulldogs Chairman John Khoury was delighted that the club had been able to keep the talented Doorey at Belmore:
"Having seen Matt's progression over the past three seasons and knowing what a quality player he is, we are extremely pleased that he has chosen to stay with the Bulldogs.
Matt has come through our Jersey Flegg and NSW Cup teams and has stepped up a level each time. He was able to do that again last year with an outstanding NRL debut and we have high hopes for him moving forward.
He is an impressive young man who is eager to learn and we believe that he will continue to develop under the guidance of Trent Barrett.
Matt will now step up into our Top 30 squad and we look forward to seeing his talents throughout the coming season and beyond."
