Bulldogs set for a big year of footy

By Kirra Livingstone

THE Beerwah Bulldogs are aiming to build on the strength of the club’s 2022 success with two sign-on days on January 21 and February 4.

The sign-ons come ahead of the club’s season launch on March 4, which will include live music, entertainment, and a special guest.

The club is working on securing a visit from Beerwah junior and NRL player, Reed Mahoney, for their launch.

Club Secretary, Nadia Rane, said the sign on days will be fun for new and returning players with a complimentary barbeque on offer.

Nadia said the club was enthusiastic about the 2023 season saying they had already received 104 registrations.

“That includes our volunteers but it’s a great start for this time of year given the season doesn’t commence until late March,” she said.

Ex NRL player, Mose Masoe, is the Beerwah Bulldogs new ambassador this season, and the club has also received Lee Addison’s expertise.

The business owner and coaching adviser will help teams reach their full potential.

“Lee runs a very successful business and runs the Rugby League Coach Facebook page, in which he will run 10 sessions to coach the team coaches, give them activities to do with players and much more,” she said.

“We’ve been fortunate enough to have a retired NRL player (Mose) become our ambassador as well, he will just be a face that some of our older players will know and help out around the club.”

The Bulldogs are also eager to enter an under 19s team in the regular competition.

But the club is seeking to boost numbers for that squad.

The Doggies are also hoping to attract more players for its women and girls squads.
