Durham and England cricketer, Keaton Jennings, 25, who is also involved in a sponsorship deal with the Washington-based dealership, took time out of his busy schedule to support the new partnership by making a guest appearance and assisting with the official presentation of the shirts with franchise manager, David Phillips.

David Phillips, franchise manager at Jennings Kia in Washington, said; “We are delighted to be able to support one of the North East’s leading Cricket Clubs by providing the branded shirts to the team of up and coming cricket players – grassroots cricket is the heart of the game.
