I’m absolutely delighted to have signed a new contact with Somerset. My aim is to play as long as I can, at least until I am 40 and beyond – if I am fit enough.

Trescothick commits to Somerset future

Somerset captain Marcus Trescothick has signed a new three-year contract with the club as he sets his sights on playing on beyond the age of 40.

The former England left-hander, who celebrates his 34th birthday on Christmas Day, has committed himself to Somerset until at least the end of 2012 with an option of extending the deal for a further year.

The new contract will continue Trescothick’s long-standing career having made his debut for Somerset in 1993 aged just 17 and he has just enjoyed one of his most successful seasons after hitting 1817 championship runs last summer.

“I’m absolutely delighted to have signed a new contact with Somerset,” said Trescothick, who will captain them next summer. “My aim is to play as long as I can, at least until I am 40 and beyond – if I am fit enough.”

Brian Rose, Somerset’s Director of Cricket, said: “We’re all very pleased that Marcus has signed a new contract with the club.

“I think this is the result of the development of the side and his appointment as captain and hopefully the long term contract at Somerset will mean that he will finish his playing days with the same county.”
