Marcus Trescothick scored his 66th First-Class hundred on Friday but the veteran former England batsman suffered a broken foot that could yet rule him out for the rest of the season.

The 42-year-old Trescothick, whose 76-Test career ended due to a stress-related condition in 2006, made exactly 100 for Somerset in their County Championship First Division clash away to Lancashire at Old Trafford.

George Bartlett s 110, his maiden first-class hundred, helped Somerset to a total of 321 for five at stumps.

There was no hint of the trouble to come when left-hander Trescothick, on 95, played a ball from Matt Parkinson defensively on the leg side and collapsed.

He needed the assistance of a runner to complete a 137-ball century and Somerset coach Jason Kerr said: It’s just been confirmed that Marcus has got a broken right fifth metatarsal so he ll be out for the foreseeable future.

But it s too early to say whether he’ll be back later in the season.

We need to get clarity on the extent of the break. If it s a clean break, it s just a few weeks recovery and then we ll get him back on his feet.”
