SAMMY KING IS COMING TO BATLEY BULLDOGS.
Batley Bulldogs are delighted to announce that Sammy King will be singing live at Batley Bulldogs before kick off at the next home fixtue at The Fox’s Biscuits Stadium, against Dewsbury Rams, on 19th August, Kick Off 3pm.
Sammy is known to all as the writer and performer of ‘Penny Arcade’, which became a worldwide hit for Roy Orbison, and he will be singing this iconic song before kick-off.
This game will be the 5th Pink Match The Bulldogs have held in succesive years. In 2014 the Club started what is now known as ‘The Pink Weekend’, raising monies for Breast Cancer Charities. Every penny raised is distributed to these Charities to support the work they do.
Chairman Kevin Nicholas said “When it comes to the Pink Weekend our fans show what great fans they are.
They dig deep and support all that is done to raise money for Charity. We try to make it a full, fun weekend with something for everyone and all we ask is that as many people, supporters, locals and those affected by this cruel disease come and join in, it really is a great atmosphere and we are hoping everyone joins in with Sammy King singing ‘Penny Arcade’ a song everyone in Batley knows”
This year on Friday 17th August from 2pm there will be afternoon cake and coffee or even afternoon tea for those wanting a bit more. On Saturday 18th there is a Gala day with Batley Boys games, bouncy castles, stalls, BBQ and full bar available.
On Sunday 19th August there will be the Pink match with Batley Bulldogs playing in a one-off Pink kit. Again we will have bouncy castles, ducking stool, stocks to drench your enemies in, stalls and live music and off course the addition of Sammy King to top the day.
When approached to join this fantastic fund raising weekend Sammy King said “its such a worthy cause, I would be more than happy to perform”
For any information about the Pink Weekend contact the Club on 01924 470062 or Beverley Nicholas on 07711 983123.
Everyone knows someone affected by this disease so please support the fundraising by supporting this Charity Weekend.
The 6th Annual Bulldogs Golf Day was another huge success with almost 100 players taking part in 25 teams. This year’s event was sponsored by Mark Watson and Northern Premier Racing Syndicate who donated a share in a Racehorse as a fabulous raffle prize.
Many of our sponsors were there along with groups of supporters and teams from Halifax RLFC and Keighley Cougars bringing the Rugby League family together as always.
For the second successive year the overall winners were Chris Purslow and friends from Birstall Premier Paving.
The event goes from strength to strength and a cracking time is had by all, along with crucial funds raised for the club. Keep an eye out for details next year and join us if you can!
The Bulldogs will travel away to Featherstone Rovers in the first of the Betfred Championship Shield Super 8 Fixtures on Sunday 12th August.
Dewsbury Rams are the first visitors to The Fox’s Biscuits Stadium on Sunday 19th August as we celebrate our Pink Weekend and look to raise more funds towards cancer charities.
We will also host Rochdale Hornets and Sheffield Eagles, and visit Barrow and Leigh before the final game of the season sees Swinton Lions come to Batley on 3oth September.
All fixtures are subject to change.
Matt Diskin’s men picked up a much needed victory in the final fixture of the regular season at The Fox’s Biscuits Stadium.
In a stop start match the home side were well in control by half time with tries from Brad Day, James Harrison, Jason Crookes and the returning Wayne Reittie, all converted by Dave Scott. Swinton’s only reply was an early penalty goal giving The Bulldogs a 24-2 half time lead.
The second period continued much the same with impressive home debutant Louis Jouffret sending James Harrison barging through the Lions’ defence for his second of the day within minutes of the restart. Dave Scott and Johnny Campbell added further scores for Batley until a scrappy final 15 minutes saw 3 players sent to the bin and the visitors were able to take advantage of an 11 man home side to narrow the margin.
Final Score: Bulldogs 40-18 Lions
As part of the Heritage Project a dinner will take place on Friday the 10th of August to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of Batley winning the TransPennine cup.

As you may be aware we are holding our 5th Pink Weekend over the 18th and 19th August. In the past the weekends have been a tremendous success with unbelievable amounts of money being raised for Breast Cancer Charities. To date we have raised a little over £51.000 in 4 years which for a Club of our size is fantastic.
For anyone who still wishes to buy one of the Pink Players Kits there are a couple left at £50 each and they really are a one off kit. The players will take off the kit after the match and they are presented to the buyers and they are not played in again. Some have bought them each year and they are becoming collectors items, so please let me know if you are interested.
Anyone still wishing to have a logo put on the kit can also contact me as we still have a week or so to complete them, but they are looking Pink!!.
Talking of donations we are again begging for any tombola items. Everyone has an unwanted present in their house and if you find any then we need them. Any donations can be dropped off at the Club or the shop or if you give me a ring I can collect
There will be entertainment all day on the Sunday but on Saturday there will be Batley Boys games, rides, slides and stalls so if you’re free then come and join in.
If anyone wants to take part, donate, buy a kit or want any other information about the weekend then please speak to me at the match or call me on 07711 983123.
