Peter David Trego, born on 12th June 1981 in Weston-super-Mare, is a professional English cricket player. He currently plays for the Somerset County Cricket Club. He has also been associated with teams like Kent and Middlesex.
This right-handed batsman and a medium pace bowler’s first-class debut for Somerset came in April 2000 in a match against Oxford. He grabbed 2 wickets in the match. He was selected to be a part of Under-19s team of England to play against the touring Sri Lankans. He made appearance in all three ODIs and scored a half century apart from taking 4 wickets.
He was also included in the first Test in which he scored 90 runs and took 1 wicket for 48 runs. Peter Trego scored his first century in first-class matches against West Indies ‘A’ in 2002. Later, he made three Championship hundreds for Somerset in 2006. His best bowling performance was 6 wickets for 59 runs in a match played for Middlesex against Nottinghamshire in 2005.
Peter Trego is one of the cricketers who are capable of big feats at the highest level. In a match against Yorkshire in 2009 he hit a brisk hundred in just 54 balls and hence proved that he can be a match winner. But still he has not been able to force enough pressure on the National selectors with regular and outstanding performances.
Trego is also a football player with his position being that of a goalkeeper. He made forty one appearances for Margate in the 2004-05 season.
Trego scored 27* runs in the first innings for Somerset followed by a brilliant bowling performance of four wickets for eighty four runs against Yorkshire in his debut season match in the Scarborough Festival County Championship
