Trescothick to play 25th season for Somerset


Former England batsman Marcus Trescothick has extended his deal with Somerset for one more year, meaning he will play his 25th season for the club next year. 

'Tresco' made his debut for Somerset in 1993 and has scored 49 centuries for the club. He averages 42.45 in First Class cricket, and played 76 Tests for England.

Trescothick said: "I have made no secret of my desire to carry on playing for Somerset for as long as I can. 

"I'm really enjoying my cricket at the moment and I still have the hunger to succeed. I am delighted that I will be a part of this club for another year.

"It's a really exciting time for the County at the moment with the talent that we have coming through and I can't wait to see what happens in the next 12 months."

Matthew Maynard, Somerset's director of cricket, said: "Marcus still has so much to offer, both on and off the field. 

"The runs he scores, the experience he brings and the knowledge that he passes on to the younger players make him a vital member of this squad."
