Marcus Awarded Testimonial Year in 2018
It is with great pleasure that Somerset County Cricket Club can announce that Marcus Trescothick has been awarded a Testimonial Year in 2018.
Marcus first played for Somerset in 1993 and since that day he has gone on to make over 800 appearances for the County scoring over 28,000 runs across all three formats of the game.
He has captained Somerset with distinction and has scored more centuries for the Club than any other player. He has also taken more catches than anyone else in the history of the County.
In 2005 he was named as a Wisden Cricketer of the Year after playing a vital role as England finally reclaimed the Ashes in a never to be forgotten series.
Marcus made his England debut in 2000 and featured in 76 Tests, 123 ODIs and three IT20s.
He is also a three-time winner of the PCA Player of the Year award.
Following the announcement Marcus said: “I feel extremely honoured to have been granted a Testimonial Year in 2018. This Club is unique and it has been an absolute privilege to play here for over 25 years.
“I consider myself to be extremely fortunate to have had such a long career and I still have the same enthusiasm for the game as I did all those years ago.”
Somerset CEO Lee Cooper said: “When you think of Somerset County Cricket Club you think of Marcus Trescothick. He embodies everything that is good about this Club and indeed the sport as a whole. His passion for the game is second to none and the manner in which he conducts himself both on and off the field is exemplary.
“I have no doubt that our Members and supporters will get behind Marcus and his Testimonial Committee and show him just how much they value his contribution to the history of this Club.”
Details of events for Marcus’ Testimonial Year will be announced in the New Year.Back to News
