Anthony Crolla and Paul Scholes open Oldham's new leisure centre
Boxing champion Anthony Crolla and ex-Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes were among the sports stars who officially opened a new leisure centre.
They attended as part of the unveiling of the £15m centre which includes a gym and indoor bowls arena in Oldham, Greater Manchester.
The Oldham-based stars described the facilities in Middleton Road as "fantastic".
Labour Oldham West and Royton MP Jim McMahon unveiled a plaque.
WBA lightweight world champion Crolla said: "It's fantastic to see facilities like this being built on my doorstep because it's this investment that will help bring new talent through."
The leisure centre, which opened to the public in November last year, is funded by Oldham Council and managed by Oldham Community Leisure.
Scholes said: "I've visited the facility with my children since it opened and they love using it."
