PETER Trego may not be playing red-ball cricket for Somerset this season, but he has shown he can still produce in the longer format with a memorable debut for Devon.

The 38-year-old, on a white-ball only contract with Somerset in 2019, signed for Devon as their match professional to add some experience to a youthful batting line up and played a key role in their thumping Unicorns Championship victory over Wales at Pontarddulais this week.

Trego made 159, becoming just the ninth player to make a century on debut for Devon, and was part of a new county record partnership for any wicket of 244 with Max Curtis (131) as Devon racked up 450-6 in their first innings.

Wales replied with 229-8 from their mandatory 90 overs and, with Devon needing quick runs to increase their chances of forcing victory, Trego obliged.

He smashed seven fours and six sixes on his way to 80 not out from 32 balls before taking 2-14 as Wales were skittled for 148, Devon securing victory by 217 runs.

Former Somerset all-rounder James Burke took 2-30 in Wales' second innings, while the Devon side was captained by Jamie Stephens, who is playing his club cricket for Taunton Deane this summer.

Devon director of cricket Dave Tall said: “What can I say about Peter Trego? As a cricketer he oozes class and as a bloke he fitted into the team straight away."
