England star Kate Cross was on hand to help the launch of Tots cricket sessions at Burnley Cricket Club on Tuesday.

The launch was well attended at MyProtein Turf Moor, with Cross on duty fresh from her eight-wicket haul at the weekend for Heywood in the Central Lancashire League against Unsworth.

She recently became the first woman to play in the Central Lancashire League in its 123-year history.

The Lancashire Women medium pacer was supported at Burnley by Jennifer Laycock from Old Trafford.

In total, there were 16 children participating in fundamental skills – catching, throwing, batting and running – for three-six-year-olds.

The first session was free, and cost £2 per week there after. Sessions are on Tuesdays from 5-30-6-15 p.m. with snack and drink included.
