LEAGUE: The Chinchilla Bulldogs are well and truly back in the swing of things as players from the U16s right through to A Grade put in the hard yards ahead of next month's season kick-off.

Taking to their newly re-turfed Bulldog Park for their third week of pre-season training, the Doggies also have their sights on the Terry Charles Memorial, played this year in Taroom on April 1.

The Terry Charles Memorial is a tournament played between Chinchilla, Tara, Miles, and Taroom/Wandoan.

It's also been a busy off-season for the Bulldogs, with a host of renovations taking place at their home ground.

A fresh lick of paint and extensions around the commentator's box mean Bulldog Park has a new office, new meeting room / sponsors box, security cameras, along with re-turfed fields, a newly irrigated back field and by mid-April, new-flooring as well.

The club is also developing a third training area - a half sized field - down at the northern end of the main field.

For those looking for something to do this weekend, the U18s will play a trial game at home against Kingaroy from 2.30pm on Saturday.

The league season will commence on April 23.

For anyone interested in playing, the Bulldogs train on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6.30pm at Bulldog Park.

Bulldogs president Lee Irwin said the club was still looking for a reserve grade coach for the 2017 season, and encouraged people to get in contact.

For more information on any of the above, contact Lee Irwin on 0418 795 213.
