FNC Plantations

Brothers Bulldogs would like to thank our Gold Sponsor for the past 3 seasons FNC Plantations.
FNC Plantations is a family-owned Macadamia farming company that commenced operations in Northern NSW in 2006. They have since expanded their operations to include 3 orchards in Northern NSW, one in Gympie QLD and have recently finished planting their 5th farm in the Bundaberg region. Brothers Bulldogs are very fortunate to have the support of FNC through Adrian Walsh, the local Operations Manager. Adrian served on the Brothers Bulldogs committee in 2019, and as Treasurer in 2020. He has also been responsible for securing several grants for our club as well as playing a major role in our winning application for the Triple M $5,000 Clubhouse Upgrade competition.

Brothers Bulldogs would like to thank 2021 Silver Sponsor and long-term supporter of the club Ross Gray Motor City.

Former players Mark Mason & Neil Hempseed both echoed the sentiments that Ross was as hard as nails on the field and a loyal team man off it with Mason very happy he played alongside, rather than against him.

Their friendly staff are specialists in
- Mazda
- Mitsubishi
- MG Motors

South Bundy Buses

26/05/21 | Brothers Bulldogs would like to thank 2021 Silver Sponsor, and long-term supporter of the club Richard and Fiona Hayes from South Bundy Buses.
Starting in 1998 with the takeover of five contracted school bus services which operated from Childers Road, Pine Creek and South Bingera into Bundaberg schools, South Bundy Buses have now expanded to a fleet of 14 vehicles covering the Bundaberg and Childers regions.
During this time they have regularly supported numerous events across Queensland and Australia with the highlights being the 2000 Sydney Olympics and Paralympic Games, and 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games where they transported numerous athletes and officials.
Today, South Bundy Buses continues to strive for improvement in quality standards to provide safe, reliable services. Further, they are a proudly local and family operated business with strong ties to the local community through their involvement with local schools, local business and the sporting community.

Blue Dog Concreting

26/05/21 | Brothers Bulldogs would like to thank 2021 Silver Sponsors, Blue Dog Concreting.
2020 Premiership winner, Club Captian, 2016 Best & Fairest, 150 games and underrated dancer, there is not much Michael “Bluey” Lovett hasn’t done for the mighty Bulldogs.
We can now add Club Sponsor to the list, with Bluey coming onboard to sponsor the “Best on Ground” for our Senior team every week for the past two seasons.
In thanking Bluey for his generosity, it would be remiss not to make mention of his better half Melina.
We could write a long-winded essay here, however we’re pretty sure Michael would be first to tell you that he’s found a good one, and with young Bryan already absolutely loving his footy we’re hoping Bluey & his family stick around for plenty of years yet.

Bundaberg Indoor Sports Centre

02/05/21 | Brothers Bulldogs would like to thank 2021 Silver Sponsors, the Bundaberg Indoor Sports Centre.
Owners Colin and Ashlee will reach 4 years in business this June, and have been around the centre for many years with both playing sports there.
When you're not playing footy of course, they have something to suit everyone!
Cricket, Ladies Netball, Mixed Netball, Junior Netball, Indoor Softball, Pool and Darts are all played out of the centre.
The venue is also fully licenced, allowing those old enough to enjoy a few refreshing beverages to "stay hydrated" during and after play.
If you'd like more information visit the Bundaberg Indoor Sports Centre website:
Keep an eye out for more Sponsor profiles in coming weeks!

2020 Season Update

Important Season Information

15/03/2020 | Today the Wide Bay League advised Brothers Bulldogs that the 2020 AFL Wide Bay Community season is indefinitely postponed due to the current circumstances surrounding the corona virus. At this stage they are hopeful that the Womens competition can still be completed, however, the beginning of the other competitions has been postponed. At this stage we are still able to train, and the league is hopeful that this postponement will only last for a limited time, however, there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the circumstances. We are hopeful to know more by Tuesday training, and the clubs will be updated regularly, but there certainly won’t be any footy action prior to Easter. At this stage I am unsure of whether Auskick will continue on Friday nights, but will relay this information as it comes to hand.

Brisbane Lions Visit

24/02/2020 | Some of our committee members and coaches were lucky enough to get to mingle with some Brisbane Lions players tonight. It was great to hear about their backgrounds and careers so far and just their take on the game in general. Was also great to hear from the Lions Academy Manager Luke Curran in regards to how their Academy runs and what their plans are for the future for not only young guys but also girls. A big thank you to the Spotted Dog for hosting and to AFLQ for organising it all and to the Lions boys Lachie Neale, Darcy Gardiner, Cam Rayner, Brock Smith & Academy Manager Luke Curran for their time.
