Marcus Trescothick steps down as Somerset skipper

CHRIS Rogers will lead Somerset in this summer’s County Championship after Marcus Trescothick stepped down from the role.

Trescothick, 40, lead the side for six years and the former England batsman’s decision to stand down was “mutually agreed” with the club.

Australian Rogers will take over in the red ball game while Jim Allenby will captain the side in limited-overs cricket.

Trescothick said: “It has been a tremendous privilege and honour to lead this great club over many years but now is the right time for change.

“I will be giving Chris and Jim my unconditional support, as well as focusing on scoring as many runs as I can in the season ahead.”
