Popular Somerset all-rounder Peter Trego has committed his future to Somerset after signing a one-year extension to his current contract.
The 35 year old will now remain with the County until at least the end of the 2018 campaign.
Pete first played for the Somerset 2nd XI back in 1997 and went on to make his first team debut against Oxford Universities in 2000. Following a brief hiatus from the sport he returned to his home county in 2006 and since then he has established himself as one of the best all-format all-rounders in the domestic game.
“I’m delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with the club I love,” he said after putting pen to paper. “It’s always been my dream to represent the County and to do so to the best of my ability.
“2016 was such an exciting year for us all and in many ways increased my passion for the coming years. Not only did we nearly reach the Holy Grail of the Championship, we witnessed all of our young talent become top class performers.
“Obviously my role within the team is always evolving and I’m happy with that. It’s all about what the team needs from me and hopefully I’ve shown throughout my career that I will do everything asked of me with a smile on my face and the Wyvern burning in my heart.”
Director of Cricket Matt Maynard said: “Pete is an extremely driven cricketer and everyone associated with the Club is delighted that he has signed a contract extension. He is one of the hardest working players on the circuit and his passion for the Club is plain to see every time he takes a wicket or scores a hundred. Not only does he do the business on the field, he is also one of the biggest characters in the dressing room and I look forward to working with him for the next two years.”
