The political power play to oust chair Lynne Anderson at Canterbury-Bankstown has taken a major twist with the Bulldogs on Tuesday being presented with enough signatures to call an extraordinary general meeting.
Bulldogs CEO Andrew Hill has received the signatures of 116 Canterbury-Bankstown football club members which means Anderson is now under direct threat to be over-thrown off the club’s football club board.

Hill will now begin the necessary legal process to guarantee the authenticity of signatures and has 21 days to confirm when the meeting will happen.
The EGM paperwork submitted to Hill is calling for the removal of Anderson along with fellow board members John Ballesty and Paul Dunn.

The Bulldogs CEO must arrange for the EGM to take place within the next two months.
The rumblings about disgruntled members gathering signatures have been doing the rounds for months as the Bulldogs have been dealing with a variety of issues.
On the field the club only narrowly avoided the wooden spoon while off the field Leagues club chairman George Coorey has been forced to stand down.
One of the key figures who played a role in collecting the signatures is John Karanikolas who was also instrumental in helping the Anderson ticket overthrow the Ray Dibb-led board in 2018.

The Anderson regime swept to power on a promise to return the Bulldogs to the glory years of when they were the Family club run by Anderson’s late father Peter “Bullfrog” Moore.
But so far the club has failed to make the finals over the course of the past three years finishing 12th, 12th and 15th this year.
In order to overthrow Anderson, Ballesty and Dunn the Bulldogs membership must gain at least 50 per cent of votes of members on the day of the EGM.
