The club have announced that full-back/winger Johnny Campbell has become the third member of the current squad to sign up for the 2014 campaign.

With recruitment for next season well underway, JC is the latest Bulldog to commit to the club for next season. In his fifth year at the club, the multi-skilled Campbell has been a valuable member of our much-vaunted three-quarter line in 2013 and his capture for next season will be regarded as a significant milestone in John Kear's recruitment campaign.

Player of The Year for me by some way. Always looks absolutely distraught when we lose too, which is demonstrative of the loyalty he has shown to the club.

A very pleasing announcement & agree with all the above. Always gives 100% & that's all we can ask for

I completely agree. For me Johnny has been standout. Seems really committed to the cause and there ain't many recently we can say that. Well done JC

Great news and a great player. Johnny could attain legendary status at the dogs aka Maun & Lindsey

I've seen some teams at The Mount during my time, some good,some bad some neither one thing or the other, but what I have always found is heart and pride, which seems to have disappeared a wee bit over this last 2 months, except in people such as Johnny and Danny and Ash, players who play for the love of this club, not for the riches they could earn elsewhere. If we could end up with 20 players with that same attitude, fans wouldn't always care if the team was winning, we would always know that they've tried their best for the club. I've had a few digs in the past, as I believe fans have the right to,but I will stand wholeheartedly behind anyone who comes off the field knowing that in that 80 minutes he couldn't have done more. Well done so far to the board and John Kear, who also deserves respect for his keeping his own counsel throughout this period of uncertainty and drop in performance levels. Other coaches might have come out and berated players, or the board and thrown tantrums, but he has kept everything in the dressing room where it belongs.I haven't always agreed with his selections and use or non-use of certain players but he's in charge and deserves credit.

Player of the year for me. Excellent news.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

Agree with all, wants the ball and shows the desire that we all want from our team.

The board are spoiling us though, all the better performers this year are up first,

I am not ITK, but Greg Johnson is the only one left now that I will be disappointed if we don't retain.

The back 3 always give me hope, when we are struggling, and Blacky should be the captain of the ship, if he believed more. I just wish he gets a young energetic fast number 7 to work with....

Credit to the other loyal lads, Mauny and ash especially, but consistency for me is the main thing in this league.

To echo the above Campbell is also my player of the year this season. Always gives his all and I'm delighted we have retained him for another season.

Both been stalwarts down the years but I think 2014 would be a season too far for them.
