SOMERSET legend Peter Trego could be lining up against the county next summer after signing for Nottinghamshire on a two-year deal.

The 38-year-old left Taunton upon the expiration of his contract in 2019, a season which saw him help Somerset to Royal London One-Day Cup glory.

Trego was dropped after four Vitality Blast matches, however, and his departure was announced in August.

The all-rounder was at pains to point out he had not retired and he will now line up at Trent Bridge for the next two seasons.

Trego will be available in all three formats - he was on a white-ball only deal at Somerset in 2019 - and should feature heavily in the Royal London One-Day Cup due to its clash with The Hundred, in which nine Nottinghamshire players are set to be involved.

Notts host Somerset in the 50-over competition on Friday, August 7 - the two sides will not face each other in the County Championship due to Notts' relegation last season.

Trego said: “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.”
