WACA board member Tom Percy calls for probe into spate of resignations

An inquiry is needed into a spate of resignations from the embattled WA Cricket Association board over the past three months, according to board member and high-profile barrister Tom Percy.

Mr Percy gave an undertaking at the organisation’s annual general meeting on Wednesday to push for the probe and for its findings to be made public to WACA members. He told The West Australian that if the board — which now includes former Test cricketer Brad Hogg — refused to launch the inquiry, he would consider his position.

Former Test batsmen Graeme Wood and Mike Veletta quit the WACA board in June, both pointing to a divide between member-elected and board-appointed directors. The walk-outs were followed this month by the resignation of WACA chairman Terry Waldron, citing a severe decline in the former WA sports minister’s mental health.

Percy, a member-elected director since 2014, said an inquiry was required because questions about the trio of resignations had largely been left unanswered.
