The Moores, the Merrier at Belmore

By David Riccio

26 July 2015 - The Sunday Telegraph

THEY could've picked any of the old blue seats high up in the grandstand. They could've bagged a spot in the players' dugout or even sat in the Canterbury coach's box alongside Des Hasler, if they wanted to.

But no, the Moore family -- all three generations of them -- want to be where memories will be made this afternoon.

On the hill at Belmore Sports Ground.

At last count, there will be 37 members of the Peter ''Bullfrog" Moore family on the hill today; nine children, 21 grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. They plan to arrive early for all three grades, just like the old days, and sit tightly packed together on the hill underneath the scoreboard named in honour of their beloved father, grandfather and great grandfather, and the club's most influential administrator.

Thanks to Bullfrog, from the 1970s, Canterbury became known as the "family club".

Bullfrog's son Kevin played for the club, as did his nephews, brothers Garry, Mark and Graeme Hughes. Later, Garry Hughes' sons Glen, Steven and Corey would also play for the Bulldogs, while long-serving Bulldogs representative players Chris Anderson and Steve Folkes married his daughters.

Lynne Anderson, Bullfrog's daughter, said this afternoon was more than just a game of footy for the entire family.

"We can't wait to get there," she said." Belmore holds a very special place in all our hearts."
