New director of cricket Matthew Maynard is determined to try and help Somerset finally end their frustrating wait for a first County Championship title.

Former England batsman Maynard arrives in Taunton looking to improve straightaway on a sixth place finish in Division One this summer, but his ultimate aim is the top spot.

He told BBC Somerset: "Hopefully we can bring that silverware at some stage, if not in year one.

"We need to get back to being further up the table. It doesn't matter if you finish first or fourth, it's the way you go about playing the game and whether you're in the mix two or three games out.

"That's what we've got to look at - are we in the mix in the back end of the season when it all counts?"

Meanwhile, Maynard would like to see veteran former England man Marcus Trescothick remain as captain, despite his batting having suffered in recent times.

He added: "What better person to lead the club than Marcus. I've got to see what he thinks but it's certainly what I'd like to see.

"Marcus has done a fantastic job here over the years. It hasn't worked that well here over the past couple of years, but hopefully we can get that back."
