Award For Marcus

Somerset captain Marcus Trescothick has been named as county cricket's Most Valuable Player for the 2011 season.

The left-handed opener, 35, is the first player in the award's five-year history to scoop the accolade twice after winning in 2009. He scored 2,518 runs in all competitions and led his side to the finals of both the Friends Life t20 and the Clydesdale Bank 40.

Trescothick said: "It's very pleasing to win."

He added: "It takes an awful lot of hard work over the course of a season to keep scoring consistently.

"It's especially nice when you are up against the other players in the game."

There also bonuses for contributions to a winning cause, victorious captains, strike rates and economy rates.

The former England man added: "As all the other good players up there with me have shown, it is mental application that gives you consistency week in, week out.

"But it's also about having the passion and the drive. There are times, particularly as a captain, when you get very tired. You've just got to keep going."
