From the Archive: Trescothick's maiden First Class century

Throughout the winter we delve into our archives to shine the spotlight on a memorable match or a former player.

Today we go back to June 1994.

Somerset welcomed Surrey to the Recreation Ground in Bath for a County Championship match, but little did anyone know that they were about to witness a little piece of history.

Marcus Trescothick went on to become one of England’s finest ever players but back in June 1994, he was a young cricketer trying to make his way in the game.

Mark Lathwell scored a superb double century, Somerset went on to win the match by 317 runs and a young Marcus completed the first of his 52 First Class centuries for Somerset.

We spoke to Marcus earlier this week to see what his memories of that match are:
