Media item   Gareth Thomas - Statement of support
Mon 21-Dec-2009 

Dear Gareth

I am writing on behalf of Grace’s Cricket Club – a London-based cricket club representing the gay community and competing in Division One of the Middlesex Sunday Cricket League.

Grace’s CC would like to offer you a message of support following your brave announcement last Friday. We all understand how difficult a step coming out is on a personal level, but for someone with such a high public profile in an area not renowned for its gay friendly credentials, it must have been particularly tough. Please be assured that you can count on our support, and that of all the many other sporting clubs within the gay community throughout the country.

We hope the courageous step you have taken will bring great benefits to you personally, and that your openness will help to bring about a significant improvement in the environment for gay people in sport – professionals, amateurs and spectators alike. We thank you for this and wish you all the best for the future.

Yours sincerely

Richard Bielby

Media and Publicity Officer

Grace’s Cricket Club
