Marcus signs for another year

Marcus v Middlesex

Marcus Trescothick has today put pen to paper on a contract extension that will see him stay with the County through the 2017 season.

Marcus made his Somerset debut back in 1993 and since that time he has proved himself to be one of the finest batsman that England has ever produced.

He has played over 800 times for Somerset, scoring over 39,000 runs across all formats.

Following this announcement Matt Maynard 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.

“Over the last two seasons Marcus has demonstrated a tremendous desire to continue playing for the County and we are all delighted that he will be back out there breaking records for us again next year.”

After committing himself to playing for another year Marcus 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.”
