“I’m delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with the club I love,” the Englishman told the Somerset website. “It’s always been my dream to represent the county and to do so to the best of my ability.
“2016 was such an exciting year for us all and in many ways increased my passion for the coming years. Not only did we nearly reach the Holy Grail of the Championship, we witnessed all of our young talent become top-class performers.
“Obviously my role within the team is always evolving and I’m happy with that. It’s all about what the team needs from me and hopefully I’ve shown throughout my career that I will do everything asked of me with a smile on my face and the Wyvern burning in my heart.”
Trego has made 207 first-class appearances since his debut in 2000.
