Marcus Trescothick has signed a new contract with Somerset meaning he will stay at the club for another year.

The club captain put pen to paper on the deal which will see him retain his role for at least the next 12 months.

Players Max Waller, Jack Leach and Josh Davey have all also signed for another two years.

Marcus is the absolute model professional and has contributed a tremendous amount to this Club.

Whilst he is coming to the twilight of his career on the field his experience and knowledge are second to none and he still has a very important role to play at Somerset County Cricket Club both on and off the field.

It is really encouraging that three other members of our squad have also committed their immediate futures to the Club.

– Matt Maynard, Director of Cricket
