SUSAN TERESA BARSBY
Sue's brother Stephen first played for the club in the Jim Boardman coached Under 18's in 1986. As all good families, Stephen's mother and father came along and watched their son play, together with daughter Susan. It was from this time forward, that Trevor Barsby not only had his eye on the cricket ball, his concentration was directed elsewhere. Trevor also played hockey, and he could not believe his luck when he also noticed Sue at the Redcliffe Hockey Club. It was from then on that things started to happen and Sue became a fixture at the cricket. As she was always watching cricket and Trevor's mother Lorna was working in the canteen, it did not take long for Sue to be invited to help. Sue joined the canteen sub-committee in the 1978/88 season and married Trevor in 1989.
She has given 23 years of continuous service to the club providing help in the canteen and fund raising for the club.
Not only does Sue serve in the canteen, she purchases all the stock after researching and finding the cheapest prices in town. Then packs all the stock and delivers them and stores everthing in the refrigerators, cold room and shelves in readiness for sale. (NOTE: The cold room was another asset that Sue acquired at the right price through her connections with hockey.)
She also arranges the canteen rosters and together with Deirdre hopefully finds senior canteen assistants for the afternoon which at times becomes very stressful. Other duties include:-
Over the years, there has been increase in the number of days that the canteen facilities are required eg. Sundays - introduction of Over 40s, Sunday Legends, Twenty20 for 1st & 2nd Grades.
