In celebration of Members Appreciation Round in the lead up to our Round 21 fixture against the Wests Tigers, Members recounted pivotal moments that made them a Bulldog for life.
“Multicultural day 1993, record crowd at Belmore Sports Ground, sitting up on the Terry Lamb Family Hill in front of the Peter Moore Scoreboard. Playing Parramatta on a warm Sunday afternoon and seeing such a mix of cultures come together from the local district, really made me appreciate how much of an integral part the Bulldogs were in bringing these cultures together in the community. Proud day to be an Australian and a Bulldog for life.” - Peter A.
Bulldogs dominate Eels in front of record crowd
“My moment was when I was in Holsworthy Primary School in the 1980's and the Bulldogs visited my school. That day I met David Gillespie. I shook his hand and thought this guy is tough! That turned my casual interest in footy into a real passion, and the Bulldogs became my team! I would then drag my Dad to Belmore and became a member with my cousin when we were about 16 and have continued as members together ever since.” -Russell M.
Gillespie: I will always call this club home
“I was 4 years old in 1994 and my Dad sat me down to watch Dogs V South's. I didn't know at the time but that was Terry Lambs 300th game. I remember watching Terry playing beautifully, Daryl Halligan kicking amazing goals and how hard our forwards ran. I loved it!!! I still do!” - Matthew E.
Tuesday Treats: The best of Terry Lamb
“My Uncle took me to a training session about 1984-85. Steve Mortimer walked past and my Uncle asked him to sign an autograph. Steve obliged and told us to wait 5 mins and he would get the whole team. The whole team signed my Big League. Amazing for a 5-year-old kid!” - John C.

“1980, watching the Bulldogs Vs Eastern Suburbs & standing on my Dads esky on the hill at the SCG under the old score board. I was shared around as a young fella sitting on everyone's shoulders as we won. From that day I was always forever till I die a Canterbury-Bankstown supporter.” - Darrin B.
