USACA Treasurer John Thickett Gives To USYCA

January 17, 2011

USYCA has received a generous donation in the amount of $500 from USACA Treasurer John Thickett and his wife, Sue. In making this commitment, Thickett expressed his belief that the mission of USYCA is central to the ultimate success of cricket in the United States.

"Sue and I are excited to support youth cricket initiatives," Thickett said. "Youth development is the cornerstone for the USA's future success in all forms of international competition. Ingraining cricket as a regular sport in our country's school systems will help to grow the domestic market and future generations of players and fans."

USYCA President Jamie Harrison is grateful for the Thicketts' gift, and for the leadership it represents.

"USYCA is honored to be the recipients of this wonderful contribution to the future of youth cricket in America," Harrison said. "John is to be commended for his willingness to take concrete action that will result in more children playing cricket in the United States. His gift demonstrates great vision on his part, and we are proud to have him on the USYCA team."

Besides his work as USACA Treasurer, Thickett, of Austin, Texas, has been actively involved in local cricket at the club, league and regional level for over twelve years with the Central Texas Cricket League and USACA's Central West region.
