Cork, who captained Hampshire to victory in the 2010 Friends Provident t20 and is renowned for his swing and seam control, spent a morning helping the youngsters improve their bowling, batting and catching skills as well as signing autographs.

Previous guest coaches at the cricket academy have included its founder, Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff, England fast bowler Jimmy Anderson and former New Zealand batsman Lou Vincent. PICTURE: GARY LONGBOTTOM
