Weston-super-Mare AFC have announced Alex Fletcher has signed for the club after his departure from from Bath City

Fletcher is best known for his spells with Tiverton Town and Bath after coming through Plymouth Argyle’s academy.

Aside from making 24 appearances with the Pilgrims, Fletcher has also spent time on loan with Torquay United and Aldershot Town.

"Alex is well known to us, he had a really good spell under Scotty (Rogers) at Tiverton previously," manager Scott Bartlett told the club's website.

“He can play in a number of attacking positions and has an eye for a goal. He also fits our profile, he’s quick, direct and can run all day."

Fletcher joined Plymouth's academy in 2008, and signed a two-year scholarship in 2015 and was part of their under-18s side.

He made his debut in the 2016-2017 season before signing his first professional contract in the summer of 2017. At the beginning of the 2017-2018 campaign, Fletcher scored three goals in 10 games for the Argyle before joining Torquay United on a 28-day loan, where he made three appearances for the Gulls, in January 2018.

Fletcher made a further 13 appearances  across the next 18 months for the Pilgrims before joining Aldershot Town in September 2019 and made six appearances.

Four months later Fletcher joined Tiverton Town on loan, which was extended to the end of the season and scored eight goals and assisted four more during his time in Devon under former manager Scott Rogers, who is now Weston's assistant manager.

After his release by Plymouth in the summer of 2020, Fletcher signed permanently for Tivy and continued his goalscoring exploits by scoring nine goals and provided three assists in 10 games before moving to the Romans in January 2021.

During his time with Bath, Fletcher scored 28 goals and assisted 10 in his 72 games.

"I’m very excited to start the next chapter of my career here at Weston," Fletcher said.

“The gaffer outlined his ambitions for the club and his playing style and it fits perfectly with how I like to play the game.

“I’ve worked with Scotty before at Tiverton Town and have shared a dressing room over the years with a good chunk of the squad, so I feel at home already.

“I’m looking forward to making my debut in front of the home fans in the games over the coming weeks and making some memories in a Weston shirt.”
