Stags stump Bulldogs

The Gordon Stags gave the Bulldogs the run around at Chatswood last Saturday in the first grade fixture. The Bankstown Sports Bulldogs chased leather all day as Gordon amassed 6-423. The home side took charge from the outset with a 56-run opening stand. Wallace Marshall removed Cahlin for 25 courtesy of a good catch from Ethen Leten. Then Ben Le Bas dismissed skipper Colley with the help of Michael Stretton and the Stags were 2-75. The Bulldogs' joy was shortlived as Gordon put together a massive 175-run stand. Nathan McAndrew fought back to dismiss Eccles for 88 and once again Leten held a smart chance. Left arm spinner Ben Taylor was bang on target with two classic dismissals which helped

Bulldogs overcome defiant Panthers

The Bankstown Sports Bulldogs thwarted a valiant lower order fightback by Penrith last Saturday at Howell Oval. The Bulldogs were always facing a tough task on Day Two following the loss of Sydney Thunder paceman Nathan McAndrew due to illness and star spinner Ben Taylor, ruled out under the concussion rule after being struck during a Futures League match during the week. On the other hand, the Panthers were bolstered by the return of star representatives Pat Cummins and Ryan Gibson after the NSW Blues controversially failed to make the finals of the National Limited Overs competition. The Panthers resumed at 6-72 chasing the seemingly unattainable Bulldogs total of 279. The game appeared se

Bankstown’s stoic batting overcomes disastrous start

After losing the toss at Howell Oval, the Bankstown Sports Bulldogs were sent into bat against a revitalised Penrith side - who were last season’s overall club champions. Unfortunately, the Bulldogs lost early wickets for very few runs. At 2/14 the Dogs were in serious need of a counter-attack - and young tyro Brendan Smith answered his captain’s call with a quick-fire 38. But again, wickets fell in pairs and Bankstown were soon 4/82. With the welcome return of this year’s 1st grade captain Michael Stretton from playing cricket in The Netherlands, stand-in skipper Mitch Brown was free to focus on gaining valuable runs for the team – which he did with his usual aplomb coupled with ferocity of

Dogs earn a hard-fought win against Bears

First Grade Mitch Brown, ‘Bankstown Sports Club Player of the Year’ last season, produced a classy bowling performance capturing 4/44 off 15 overs as the Bulldogs secured a hard-fought victory over North Sydney at Memorial Oval on Saturday. Resuming at 0-7 the visitors began solidly before paceman Nathan McAndrew bowled Anjam Oberai for 20. A quick-fire 65 run second wicket partnership between opener Ben Bryant and Norths skipper Justin Avendano gave the visitors the ascendency until Avendano miss-hit a delivery from Wallace Marshall, with Kyle Brockley taking a well-judged outfield catch. Bryant was in great form and with all-rounder Rob Aiken took the Bear’s score to 4/200 before Brown ha

Dogs off to a flyer against Bears

Premier Grade Cricket Review Round 2 Bankstown v North Sydney Day 1, 30th September 2017 by Mick Stephenson First Grade The Bankstown Sports Club Bulldogs are in a commanding position at Memorial Oval in the two-day fixture against North Sydney. Daniel Solway followed his glorious century last week with a stunning 168 not out against the Bears. Officials were sent scrambling through the record books in an attempt to find a better start to the season by a Bulldogs batsman. It proved to be a fruitless search as Daniel's Super average of 370 was unsurpassable. He totally tamed the beleaguered Bears and plundered nine boundaries plus four stellar sixes. His opening stand with left handed Luke
