Somerset v Essex 2019 in Pictures, Day 7

The last day of the 2019 County Championship season saw the retirement of Marcus Trescothick. In an era when hyperbole is constantly overused the word legend can be fittingly applied to the great man.

I know the featured image isn’t from the Essex game last season but please allow me some poetic licence. how can something so sad make you so happy? As if the pain of being pipped (again) to the title wasn’t enough the last day of the 2019 season was the last time we will see Marcus Trescothick on the field for Somerset’s first XI.

I’m not even going to try to put into words my admiration for the man, just to say thank you yet again for everything he has done for the club for over half my lifetime of support of Somerset CCC.

Here are just a few images of those moving last moments of Tres in a Somerset shirt
