WORCESTERSHIRE have agreed a three-year deal with kit supplier MKK.

Former England cricketer James Kirtley founded MKK in 2004 and they supply more professional teams than any other cricket brand in the UK.

The County have joined forces with Eastbourne-based manufacturers MKK until 2014 and they have the option of extending the agreement by a further five years.

Worcestershire, who have joined Nottinghamshire, Sussex, Surrey and Middlesex on MKK’s books, will be retailing their new merchandise as of March/April.

Kirtley said: “To have two more county sides on board is excellent news for MKK and I’m very happy to be working with Worcestershire and Nottinghamshire. For me personally, I have special playing memories of both New Road and Trent Bridge.”
