BENTSTIX PLAYER PROFILE

Lindsay


Nickname/Others might call me:

Coops or Stumpy when I played basketball in Bundaberg

My gay character on TV is:

Will Truman from Will & Grace

Post-game food – you will find me ordering:

who knows whatever is available at the canteen if there is one

My hockey experience:

I’m the “elder Statesman” of the Club .. started playing when I was 4yo. 2014 will be my 47th year of playing this wonderful game. I have played most of my hockey in Queensland particularly Bundaberg (rum country) and Brisbane; played representative hockey for several years; have now played the past 20 years in the local Sydney competition with Briars, Easts, UNSW and now Bentstix

I have the privilege of being awarded Life Membership twice .. firstly with Gin Gin District Hockey Club in Bundaberg in 1984 where I was Club Secretary for 9 years and again in 2013 with Bentstix .. Treasurer since 2001

Best thing about being a Bentstix member:

Being able to play hockey with like minded guys and being involved with the Club that has a great social atmosphere and grown in the past few years to be a very great club indeed

I joined Bentstix because:

Having played with other gay guys it was only natural to play with such a great bunch of guys when the Club was formed .. best decision ever.

My fav position (on the hockey field) is:

I prefer left fullback

When I’m not on the hockey field:

I’m either watching or umpiring other Bentstix teams if possible or relaxing at home

If life were a musical my theme song would be:

Can’t think of anything lol

I prepare for a game by:

Don’t really prepare much, just have a hit around to warm up a bit

If I was in drag for a night – my drag name and inspiration would be:

Hmmmm don’t laugh but I have been coerced to do drag several times in the past (shared with a drag queen in Earlwood when I first moved to Sydney who was friends with Mitzy McIntosh etc); drag name was Lindy Lou.
