The Burford Bulldogs Jr. C Hockey Club are a Canadian Junior “C” hockey club based in Burford, Ontario, Canada. Since the creation of the club in 1988, the Bulldogs strive to maintain a quality junior hockey experience in the community of Burford and surrounding area.
As a non-profit organization, the Burford Bulldogs Jr. C Hockey Club relies heavily on generous sponsorship relationships with individuals and businesses. The club takes great pride in continuing to run this way on a yearly basis and is continuously becoming more innovative as time progresses without forgetting its deeply rooted history within the community.
The Burford Bulldogs were founded in 1988 after a long layoff of junior hockey in the Town of Burford. During the mid to late 1970s, the town was represented at the junior hockey level by the Burford Knights.
During the late 1980s, the Bulldogs would compete in the Western Junior D Hockey League (Jr. “D”) and would celebrate its first winning season during the 1989-90 season as the club finished the campaign with a 19-12-4 record. The team’s best season game a few years later as the 1991-92 outfit surged to a 25-10-0 record, finishing 4th overall.
As time went on, the Ontario Junior Development League (Jr. “D”) was disbanded and the Southern Ontario Hockey League (Jr. “C”) was created in its place. During the 2013-14 season, the Bulldogs were placed in a newly formatted Midwestern Junior C Hockey League.
Further tinkering by the OHA during the off-season of 2016 would eventually lead to creation of the Provincial Junior Hockey League (Jr. “C”). The Burford Bulldogs were placed in the South Conference – Pat Doherty Division.
