We are delighted that Pete has signed a new contract with us. Since returning to his home county in 2006 he has been a major force in helping Somerset to become one of the most competitive sides in cricket.”
Somerset County Cricket club have announced that Pete Trego has signed a new three year contract with the Club.
The all-rounder enjoyed a hugely successful season in 2012 during which he captured 50 wickets in the County Championship as well as coring 600 runs in the same competition.
He was crowned as the FTI Most Valuable Player for the 2012 season.
Somerset CCC have announced that Abdur Rehman will be coming back to play for the county.
The Pakistan Test bowler enjoyed massive success during his brief stay in 2012, taking 27 wickets in four championship games.
Chairman of the Cricket Committee, Vic Marks said: “We are delighted that we have secured the services of Abdur Rehman for the latter half of the 2013 season.”
“At the moment he is contracted to play the final few weeks of the season which will include five championship games and one day cricket as well. Subject to his international commitments we will try to extend his contract through into the T20 period to make him available for that as well.”
Somerset cricketer Nick Compton has scored his first Test match half century for England against India in Kolkata.
He was somewhat overshadowed by captain Alastair Cook's record 23rd century and was eventually trapped leg-before wicket for 57, as England assumed control of the third Test.
England reached 216-1 in reply to India's 316 all out at the close of day two.
And Compton's county, Somerset, has announced a club record profit of £400,000 for the year ending September 2012.
That's a slight increase on the previous year and reflects income generated by last year's Champions League campaign as well as an Elton John concert this year.
Last season, Somerset once again finished as County Championship runners-up and reached the twenty-twenty semi-finals.
Nick Compton is about to follow in the footsteps of his famous grandfather, Denis Compton. He will make his international debut tomorrow.Read the full story ›
