Back to Belmore President Luke Cevolani today issued the following statement to welcome the new Chairman of the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Rugby League Club, Mr John Khoury.
“On behalf of the Back to Belmore executive committee, I offer my sincere congratulations to John Khoury who will have the honour and privilege to serve as Chairman of the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Rugby League Club.
“Both the Bulldogs and Back to Belmore are committed to the same basic ideal of restoring Belmore Sports Ground as a top-class sporting facility. Both of us seek to safeguard the historic venue for future generations of athletes. Over the last three years, we have been able to rebuild our relationship on a new and deeper basis. I look forward to working collaboratively with the new Chairman to continue to advocate the preservation and restoration of Belmore Sports Ground and to ensure that the iconic facility meets the needs of the Canterbury-Bankstown district for years to come.
“I also thank Lynne Anderson for her crucial work to strengthen and enhance the important nexus between the Bulldogs and Back to Belmore during her tenure as Chair. It was during this time that a pivotal joint summit meeting was held between the two entities charting the course for the normalisation of relations between the Bulldogs and Back to Belmore.”
