An explosive all-rounder, Peter Trego is a professional English cricketer who made his first appearance for Somerset 2nd XI in 1997 at the age of just 16. Trego might be remembered as one of the best players of his era not to represent England. In Somerset.
Trego, who linked up with Nottinghamshire ahead of the 2020 season, has assembled a record that stands in comparison with any in the county game this century. Having made his debut for Somerset in 2000, and against the West Indies A in 2002, he scored a career-best of 140 in a match that ended in an exciting tie.
Trego returned to his home county in 2006 after spells with Kent and Middlesex and he took his chance back at Somerset with both hands. In 2007, Trego earned the recognition of the Cricket Society for his exploits with bat and ball, being named their leading all-rounder in English first-class cricket. This was followed five years later with one of the most prized honours in the domestic game, as the right-hander took home the Professional Cricketers’ Association’s 'Most Valuable Player' award.
Trego enjoyed a consistent 2014 season which included two centuries in the space of 48 hours in the Royal London Cup. He concluded his first-class season with career-best bowling figures of 7 for 84 against Yorkshire at Headingley. Trego had his best ever season with the bat in 2016 and passed the 1000 runs milestone for the first time in his career, hitting two centuries, including a new career-best of 154 not out against Lancashire at Old Trafford.
When Somerset decided against renewing the contract of Peter Trego at the end of the 2019 season, the all-rounder was signed by Nottinghamshire on a two-year contract. Trego arrived in the East Midlands having scored over 18,000 runs and taken in excess of 600 wickets across all formats in his career, the majority of which had been spent with Somerset.
