London:

Sussex all-rounder Robin Martin-Jenkins is to retire from professional cricket and start a new career in teaching, it was announced on Wednesday.

The 34-year-old has told the south coast county he will be unavailable after July 19, the date of the Clydesdale Bank 40 match against Worcestershire at Sussex's Hove headquarters ground.

Martin-Jenkins, son of cricket journalist Christopher Martin-Jenkins, the president-elect of MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club), will become a geography and religious studies teacher at Hurstpierpoint College school in Sussex.

"I could have carried on, but I didn't want to get to the stage where I was holding on too long and not performing," Robin Martin-Jenkins, a medium-pacer and middle-order batsman, said in a statement.

"I'm still enjoying it and I'm going out in a period when I'm still playing well," added Martin-Jenkins, who played in Sussex's three County Championship winning sides.
