Some ball at Headingley that turns! (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

lathe

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'that turns' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this definition defines the answer.

'some ball at headingley' is the wordplay.
'some' says the answer is hidden in the clue (some of the parts of the word are used).
'LATHE' is hidden within 'ball at headingley'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for lathe that I've seen before include "Turner's tool" , "This is turned out" , "Rotating machine tool" , "Turning tool" , "Wood-turning machine" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
