Cricket star James Kirtley has swapped codes to launch the latest line of his sportwear company.

The Sussex Sharks bowler, left, supplies a range of professional and amateur teams and clubs through his MKK brand and has now moved into rugby kit.

The 35-year-old said: “When we launched MKK the guiding principal was to make the high quality kit that the professionals use accessible to amateurs.

“We started in 2006 with a handful of professional and amateur cricket clubs and now, four years later, we are represented in virtually every sporting arena. The move into rugby was a natural and obvious next step.”

MKK’s highest profile clients include Sussex and Middlesex County Cricket Clubs.
