The wicketkeeper, who picked up the West of England Premier One Championship in 2018 and made more than 150 first-team appearances, moved to Weston in 2019, where he stayed for two seasons.

“It really is an absolute honour to put on the Clevedon shirt once again and compete at the highest level," Plummer told the club's website.

“I can’t wait to play at Dial Hill again - I’ve sorely missed the members, the players and 'Chalky'. I’m really looking forward to seeing the boys again.

“I’ve kept in contact with many of the players over the last couple of years and I have to thank Jake Lintott and Piers McBride for convincing me to come back to the Hill."

Weston head coach Sam Trego expressed his disappointment at seeing Plummer go but sent their best wishes.

"The whole club is sad to see 'Plums' leave the club," said Trego.

"He was a massive contributing factor in keeping Weston in Prem 2 in 2019 with some outstanding displays behind the stumps and some handy scores with the bat near the end of the season

"Will’s return to Clevedon will no doubt bolster their batting order but ultimately they are getting one of the best wicketkeepers in club cricket.

"That’s exactly the reason why I signed him in 2019. Having played club cricket with Plums at Uphill Castle I knew what he was all about and what he’d bring to club.

"He’s a great lad and I’ll be following his cricket with interest over the next few seasons."
