The battling Boro number 19 finished the 2017-18 season as the club’s top scorer and player of the season, prompting boss Dino Maamria to make extending and bettering the terms of the 27-year-olds contract a priority.

Speaking to Stevenage’s official YouTube channel, Newton said: “I’m delighted to have this sorted. Everyone’s been brilliant since I signed and I had an incredible last season.

“There’s a different feel around the club this season, there’s a lot more solidarity. I’m looking forward to having another great year.”

Signed in June last year from Tamworth FC, Newton scored 16-goals in his debut season at the Lamex. A driving attacking force, Newton earned praise for his surging runs and combative performances.
