England's star pacer Kate Cross has been appointed as the Non-Executive Director of the Lancashire Cricket Foundation. The 31-year-old will attend her first Board meeting in September 2023, after an open application and interview process.

The Foundation is a fantastic charity, which I’ve seen first-hand over the past 10 years as an ambassador, and I’m excited to see what we can continue to achieve together to make a real difference to people’s lives.
“Having come through the system at Heywood Cricket Club, I’m hugely passionate about the growth and development of grassroots cricket and that we get as many young girls and boys as possible involved in the game. I’m looking forward to working with the wider Lancashire Cricket Foundation team in the coming years, to ensure we inspire the next generation of cricketers across the North West and beyond," Cross said.
