Scan offers Trescothick hope
Somerset captain Marcus Trescothick has not given up hope of featuring again this season after a scan showed the injury to his right ankle was not as severe as first feared.
Trescothick, county cricket’s most prolific run-scorer this summer, looked set to face a lengthy lay-off after limping out of Monday’s Clydesdale Bank 40 victory over Essex at Taunton with a recurrence of an earlier problem.
However, the former England opener told the club’s official website: “The injury is not quite as bad as we feared, but I am not able to put any time limit on my recovery at such an early stage.
"There is damage to a few tendons, with a couple of grade two/three tears and another one stretched, so it is just a case of waiting to see how the rehabilitation programme works.
"I'm not saying my season is over yet, although clearly time is against me."
Somerset host Durham next weekend in the semi-finals of the Clydesdale Bank 40 and will hope to have Trescothick available should they reach the final, to be held at Lord’s on September 17.
