Kris Thetford Memorial Cup

Cleburne Soccer Association Logo Kristopher Ryan Thetford was born on September 27th of 1985 to Jon and Kim Thetford. Kris was a very kind hearted loving kid who loved playing soccer. Adored by many in the area, he enjoyed working with the kids and helping them learn the game until his premature passing at the age of 15 in 2000.

For ten years, Jon served as President of Cleburne Soccer Association (CSA). At the time of his election, the CSA had 432 kids involved in soccer. During his time as president the financial stability of this non-profit organization flourished into what it is today, thus allowing the Cleburne Soccer Association the means to help needier families who can't quite cover the fees it cost for their kid(s) to play.

Now, the Cleburne Soccer Association is 900 kids strong thanks to the efforts put forth by Jon and Kim Thetford. Jon and Kim contributed countless hours toward the success of the Cleburne Soccer Association to make it what it is today, the largest association in the Metroplex Soccer Alliance.
