Avery’s contract runs until the end of the current season, with a club option for the 2020/21 season

The defender has played alongside Mike Symons and Chris Knowles before at Gloucester, while manager Scott Bartlett has coached him during a trial at Forest Green Rovers, when Bartlett was first-team coach at The New Lawn.

Bartlett said: “We are delighted to be able to bring Sam to Weston. He is a player I know well and will be another excellent addition to our squad.

“He has good experience, is a combative defender, comfortable in possession and a good character.”
