Somerset director of cricket Matt Maynard said: "Marcus is the absolute model professional and has contributed a tremendous amount to this club.

"While 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 both on and off the field."

Trescothick played more than 200 times for his country across the formats, including 76 Test caps, and has 56 first-class hundreds.
