Trescothick extends Taunton stay
Somerset captain Marcus Trescothick has agreed a new three-year deal at Taunton.
A prolific presence on the domestic scene in recent years, the former England opener made his senior debut for the county of his birth in 1993 and has gone on to score over 13,500 first-class runs for Somerset with the aid of 37 centuries.
He was appointed club captain in 2010 and has overseen two second-placed finishes in the LV= County Championship, while also leading the team to several limited-overs finals.
Now 37, Trescothick said: "It’s always nice to sign a new contract with Somerset. I have been here for 20 years now, and this is just another extension to my playing career.
"I’m delighted to sign this new contract which takes me to 40, which is my first target and we will go from there."
Somerset chief executive Guy Lavender added: "Marcus is a fantastic captain, player and person, so we are delighted that he has agreed a new deal with the club, where he has played since he was 17 years old.
"We hope that he will continue to play for many years to come and that in the not too distant future he will achieve his ambition of lifting the County Championship for Somerset.”
