Dwayne Plummer (born 12 May 1978) is an English former professional football forward. He featured in a Paul Gascoigne skills video as a youngster.[6] He has also represented the Cayman Islands in a 5–0 friendly defeat to American club side D.C. United, but he never played for them in a full international after FIFA ruled that he did not meet eligibility requirements.[7]

Playing career[edit]

Plummer began his career as a trainee with Bristol City, turning professional in September 1995. He joined Stevenage Borough in November 1998 on a free transfer, after initially being on loan.

He then played for Chesham United before joining Bristol Rovers in September 2000.[8] Later that month he scored the winning penalty as Rovers put Premiership Everton out of the League Cup.[6] His time with Rovers was disrupted by injuries,[9] and he left in September 2002 when his contract was terminated for 'gross misconduct' involving an 'incident at a gym'.[10] He had a few months without a club before joining Harlow Town in January 2003.[10] Later that month he joined Gravesend & Northfleet,[11] but was released after just one substitute appearance, a 2–1 defeat at home to Margate.[12]

He joined Aylesbury United,[12][13] from where he joined Bath City in September 2003, having been with the club since pre-season.[14] He played six times, all as a substitute, before leaving following a disagreement with the Bath fans during the defeat away to Thame United in the FA Cup.[15]

He joined Crawley Town in November 2003, but left the following January.[16] He joined Hendon, making his debut against Crawley on 17 January,[3] before joining Thurrock in June 2004.[17]

He joined Kingstonian in December 2004,[18] before joining Staines Town in the 2005 close-season.[19]

He was a regular in the Staines side, but left to join AFC Wimbledon in October 2005, having broken his nose in his final game for Staines.[19] He joined Braintree Town in June 2006,[20] but missed the first six games of the season having been sent off while at Wimbledon, a fact he failed to inform the Braintree manager George Borg until the last minute.[21]

He joined Boreham Wood in February 2007,[22] and joined Carshalton Athletic in February 2008.[23]

His younger brother Tristan played for Bristol City.
