John O’Sullivan 2006

Life member 2006

John came to the club in 1992 after moving from New Zealand to help in the family business. John had been scoring in NZ for over 30 years and wished to continue his love of scoring in Brisbane. He took over from Former Souths Secretary and life member Basil Wright (1989) as scorer for first grade. It was not long before the ABC snapped him up and appointed him as the official scorer for the network for First class matches in Brisbane. John has continued on with the role, and first grade scorer, only retiring in recent years (2012-13) from scoring duties.

Over a number of years John organised the trivia and pre-test nights and any raffle going at the club. John took over as co-ordinator for the Storey Bridge raffles in 2006 and only retired in late 2013. John has raised many thousands of dollars for the club and continued up until late 2014 organising and running the raffles for the club at the Sunnybank Hotel.
