Stevenage forward Danny Newton has signed a new deal at the Lamex as Dino Maamria secures ‘one of our most important players.’
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.
Maamria said: “It was important for us to get his future nailed down and he’s been rightly rewarded for his performances.”
