38 year old former Somerset all-rounder Peter Trego has joined Nottinghamshire in a surprising move that will add vital experience to the Trent Bridge dressing room.
After 14 years at Somerset averaging over 33 with the bat and taking near 400 wickets (as well as over 3,000 T20 runs) Trego who won the Royal London Cup with Somerset in May joins Notts stating “It’s an absolute honour to join Nottinghamshire.”
“Trent Bridge has been a great stomping ground for me on a personal level, it inspires me and it’s brilliant to get the chance to play there week in week out.”
“I’m coming into a new club and want to show people what I can do on and off the field, in the dressing room and be a match-winner.”
“I’m a big believer in being judged on my performances and by mid-season I hope to be a fan favourite and someone who is seen as giving their all for the club.”
On signing the Weston-Super-Mare born right hander Notts Head Coach Peter Moores stated “He’s got 20 years of experience in the professional game and has a strong reputation as a player and how he goes about his cricket.”
“I’ve had good conversations with him about his passion to carry on playing, but also to offer something back to the game.”
“He’s an all-round player; batter, bowler and fielder and he will also offer another layer of support to some of our younger players.”
“We’ve lost a lot of experience from our dressing room, so Pete adds balance to our squad in terms of age and experience.”
