Claret-tinged cricket supporters took advantage of a match outside the home of Burnley forward Danny Ings to display their support for the in-demand striker.
Lowerhouse fans unveiled a banner reading “Wave if you’re staying Danny” on Rawtenstall Cricket Club’s Bacup Road ground, directly opposite Ilex Mill where the forward has a plush apartment.
Lowerhouse Cricket Club were contesting a Worsley Cup semi-final against Rawtenstall, which the home team won in a thrilling last over to set up a final with Burnley.
The banner was unveiled at the start of Rawtenstall’s innings on Sunday as Ilex Mill residents could be seen watching from the rooftops and balconies of the former cotton mill.
Ings, who finished last season as Burnley’s top scorer with 21 league goals, was the Championship’s Player of the Season as the Clarets gained promotion to the Premier league.
The 21-year-old has one year remaining on his contract at Turf Moor where Clarets fans hope he will be plying his trade in the coming season.
And Burnley Cricket Club fans will have the chance to unveil their own banner of support when their team contest the Worsley Cup final on Rawtenstall’s ground on Sunday, August 10th.
