Busy time for Pete in and out of the nets

Pete Trego has been very busy this winter.

In addition to his training regime he has been carrying out some major work on his house in Weston-super-Mare.

Those who know Pete will be aware that he once worked full time on building sites, so he is more than the average DIY enthusiast!

Regarding his busy schedule Pete said: “I’ve been training pretty hard, but I’ve also dusted off my tools and done a bit of renovation work on my house, which was long overdue. I got stuck into that big time in October and November and combined that with training, but now the new season is just around the corner I’m back down at the ground as per usual with the boys in the nets.

“It’s been good and we’ve had a very enjoyable first few weeks back. It’s nice to be back with everyone and you can sense the new season isn’t too far away.”

Talking about the changes in senior management that have taken place Tregs said: “For the older guys among us it’s nice to see Sarge (Andy Hurry) back around the place again. He and Jason (Kerr) get on really well and you can sense a synergy between them.

“With Jason having been in charge of the Academy and then Assistant Coach, pretty much all of the first team have come up under him so relationships are really strong. There is a really good vibe about the place.”

How does it feel to be one of the senior professionals in the dressing room?

“Even though I might be 36 and one of the old guys here, I feel proud to still be around all of the young players who are coming up through the Club,” he said. “I still see myself as one of the fittest in the dressing room, although that’s not a given and I’m always looking to challenge myself. At some point things might start to fall away, but I think my general fitness will always stand me in good stead.”

Looking ahead Pete said: “I’m pleased with the way that I’ve been striking the ball in my first few nets and I’m hoping to be able to put last season, which was a little bit slower than I would have liked, behind me and really crack on and have a good year. I’m very excited about what the season holds in store for me and for Somerset.”
