Somerset captain Marcus Trescothick has signed a new three-year contract which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2012 season with an option to go on until 2013.
Trescothick, who made his debut for Somerset as a 17-year-old in 1993, had a successful year with the bat in 2009, scoring 1,817 LV County Championship runs.
"I am absolutely delighted to have signed a new contract with Somerset. My aim is to play for as long as I can, at least until I am 40 and beyond - if I am fit enough," Trescothick told Somerset's official website (www.somersetcountycc.premiumtv.co.uk).
It was announced earlier in the year that Trescothick, who has retired from international cricket, would be taking over the captaincy at the club after the retirement of Justin Langer
