Peter Trego Calls Time on Stellar Career
After announcing his retirement, Peter Trego put an end to a brilliant 22-year County career. Trego, 40, played for Somerset for almost two decades, hitting over 1800 runs and delivering 547 wickets before moving to Nottinghamshire for the final two seasons. With appearances for Middlesex and Kent, he finished his career with 18,827 runs and 646 wickets across all formats.
“It’s always a strange time that comes to every sportsman,” said Trego. “Coming here for the last couple of years has been amazing. To sign for a club and win a trophy in your first season, even though I only added the icing to that cake, I will always look on that day proudly.
“The young all-rounders within the squad, who probably wasn’t ready for first-team cricket when I arrived, are now winning games for the club, which is magnificent to see.”
“We’ve only caught the back end of Pete here at Nottinghamshire, but what a career he’s had,” Trego was instrumental in Nottinghamshire’s T20 Blast final victory last year, according to head coach Peter Moores.
“The levels of performance he has sustained over a long time have been there for all to see and he’s very well respected within the county game because of it. “He’s filled that role with distinction, whilst also maintaining his work ethic, ambition, and performances as a player in his own right.” Trego played in 23 games for Nottinghamshire after joining the Trent Bridge side before the 2020 season.
