Marcus Trescothick is showing no signs of slowing up after passing 1,000 first-class runs for the 2016 season in mid-July with a double ton against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge.
The 40-year-old former England opener plundered 218 on the hottest day of the year and in doing so equaled Harold Gimblett's all-time record of 49 first-class centuries for Somerset.
At the start of the season, the county's director of cricket Matthew Maynard backed the evergreen Trescothick to continue producing the goods in the middle after he stood down as captain to be replaced by Australian Chris Rogers. 
Maynard told XtraTime: “He's still very motivated to succeed. He loves playing the game and as long as you have that want and desire then you can carry on.”
