    Marcus Trescothick has confirmed he will play his 25th season for Somerset after signing a new one-year contract.
    Trescothick, 40, made his Somerset debut in 1993 and is closing in on 25,000 first-class runs. Earlier this season he equalled Harold Gimblett's record of 49 centuries for the county. This summer he has scored 978 at 54.33 in the County Championship.

    If Middlesex defeat Lancashire today, the title is as good as theirs. If Lancashire do not succumb, however, then Middlesex, Somerset and Yorkshire will contest what could still be a wonderful climax to the Championship season next week
    Somerset, by virtue of a win achieved with a day and 8.3 overs to spare, have cut the margin to second-placed Yorkshire to a single point. Middlesex could lead by 20 points if they beat Lancashire. The advantage, variously, would reduce to nine points if they drew, and four if they lost.

    Come on the Red Rose!!!!

    Steve Davies, the former England wicketkeeper, is expected to join Somerset after calling time on his Surrey career.
    Surrey announced on Wednesday that Davies will leave the club at the end of this season after he turned down a new two-year contract because he wants to revive his wicketkeeping career.
    Davies' path to a wicketkeeping role he surprisingly relinquished at the start of the 2014 season is currently blocked at Surrey by Ben Foakes, whose development as a keeper-batsman has made him a possible selection as a back-up wicketkeeper for England's Test tours of Bangladesh and India this winter.
