Weston AFC have confirmed Marlon Jackson has agreed to stay with the Seagulls after he was approached by an unnamed National League club.
The 31-year-old re-joined last month, following his departure from Chippenham Town, and has now committed his future to the side.
Jackson has scored one goal in four appearances - in Weston's 2-0 win at Hendon - when the striker found the back of the net four minutes after being introduced as a half-time substitute.
The popular forward first played for Weston in the 2018-19 season, when he scored 10 goals in 26 appearances.
“Marlon has had a great impact since coming in. He is a good player, there is no fuss, he gets on with his job and is a good influence on his teammates," manager Scott Bartlett told the club's website.
“We are delighted he has agreed to stay and we have started early discussions to take that into next season also.”
Tonight's Somerset Premier Cup second round clash with Keynhsam Town will be live streamed on the Somerset FA's Facebook page in an attempt to reach a new audience.
