WESTON’S top goalscorer has left the club to join Aldershot Town.
Tristan Plummer only joined the Seagulls in the summer but has impressed with seven goals this season.
The clubs met twice in the FA Trophy at the end of last year and Plummer caught the eye of Shots boss Andy Scott, scoring in both the original tie and the replay.
Plummer joined Weston on a non-contract basis and therefore the club is entitled to no fee.
Manager Craig Laird praised the former Bristol City forward for his efforts in the first half of the season.

“He is bright, bubbly, his enthusiasm is infectious and we are going to miss him greatly but he goes with the best of wishes.

“I remember saying to Robert (Head coach Robert Boyd) at the time that we where fortunate to have a player of his ability and it would be a case of if we could keep him to Christmas and score a few goals then everyone will be a winner.”
Plummer, who made his last appearance for the club in Tuesday’s 3-2 win at home to title-chasing Eastleigh, thanked the club for getting his career back on track.
He said: “I didn’t really want to go but Aldershot are offering a great package.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Weston and it feels quite emotional to be leaving.
“There are some very good people here on and off the pitch. I will always be a Weston supporter.”
Weston’s first game without Plummer comes tomorrow at home to Gosport Borough, with kick-off at 3pm.
