A business in Barrow has been named as the sponsor of two local sports clubs.

MKM Barrow will now have its name on the kit for Barrow Cricket Club, whilst it also backing Hindpool Tigers, an amateur rugby league club, for the next two seasons.

A spokesperson from the cricket club said: "We are excited to partner with MKM Barrow and can't wait to see our players sporting the new gear on the field."

The Tigers explained that they were 'delighted' with the news, with thanks going to MKM director Mark Kendall for agreeing the deal.

They added: "As well as the signage around Brisbane Park you will also see the MKM logo featured in the new under-10s playing strip as well as the under-13s warm up shirts.

"Support like this is invaluable to us and since coming to town, MKM have thrown their weight behind many local teams and organisations and we are thrilled they have also chosen to support us."
