Rain-affected Dogs playing tough

First Grade The weather was the winner on the weekend with very few games going the full distance. Blacktown won the toss and invited the Bulldogs to bat. This came as no surprise as rain had been around especially on Friday. The Bankstown Sports Bulldogs battled hard to reach 4-66 before the rains came. The innings featured an excellent fighting knock from belligerent Bulldog Nick Carruthers. The defiant run-getter handled the awkward conditions with aplomb and finished with an unconquered 34. He hammered five classy boundaries and prevented the Warriors from making further inroads. English batsmen Matt Waite must have felt at home in the conditions but was dismissed for 23 just before play

Bulldog Pups at National U19s

Two promising young pace bowlers from the Bankstown Premier Grade Cricket Club are performing well at the Australian Under 19 Championships in Adelaide with 18-year-old Liam Marshall representing NSW Metro and 16-year-old Brad Simpson representing the Cricket Australia U17 XI.

However, a Ghost in the shape of former Bulldogs star Phil Wells joined Charlie Dummer in a 73 run second wicket partnership before Dummer was trapped LBW by Ben Taylor for 35. The game of cat and mouse continued with Oliver Robinson (14) and Jake Cormack (39) providing solid support for Wells who became another Ben Taylor victim, caught by Kyle Brockley for 70, leaving the game evenly poised with the visit

Solway haunts Ghosts all day

Premier Cricket Round 7 vs Campbelltown-Camden Week 1 A stellar innings from the irrepressible Daniel Solway enabled the Bankstown Sports Bulldogs to reach 310 at Memorial last Saturday. Campbelltown skipper Phil Wells won the toss and invited the home side to bat. Bankstown openers Peter Dignam and Daniel Solway put on a formidable 73 until Dignam was stumped for a fighting 24. His debut season in the top grade has been a successful one and he has consistently got the side off to a solid start.

Brendan Smith hammered a useful 34 which kept the Bulldogs barking whilst all-rounder and
