Former England opener Marcus Trescothick is set for 27th domestic season with Somerset after signing a one-year extension with the club.

Trescothick who has played 76 Test for England scoring 5825 runs made his first class debut in 1993 and has scored more than 26,000 runs in the longer formats of the game.

The 42-year-old was a member of the England team that won the Ashes against Australia in memorable style in 2005. “I still have the drive, passion and energy to want to get better and strive to perform for the team,” Trescothick told Somerset’s website.

“I’m delighted to have signed for at least another year. I’m excited for what is to come for the club when you look at the combination of youth and experience within the squad.”

Trescothick has made nine County Championship appearances this season, scoring three half-centuries and one ton for First Division side Somerset.
