Winning catch for England batsman
Marcus Trescothick and Hayley Rowse
The player was married in his home county of Somerset
Cricketer Marcus Trescothick had the match of his life on Saturday when he married long-term girlfriend Hayley Rowse.

The couple wed at a ceremony in All Saints Church, Trull, Somerset.

England captain Michael Vaughan, bowler Matthew Hoggard and all-rounder Andrew Flintoff were among the 50 guests.

Trescothick, 28, first played for England in 2000 and captained the team in Zimbabwe in 2001.

The left-hand batsman, who also plays for Somerset, was apparently being groomed as Nasser Hussain's eventual successor.

But he was overlooked when Hussain missed the match against Namibia because of injury.

Once the wedding celebrations die down Trescothick is due to accompany the England team to the West Indies for a Test series beginning in February.
