Newts extends his contract at Stevenage.

Congratulations to our man Danny Newton who has just signed a 1 year extension to his current deal at Stevenage after a fantastic debut season with the Hertfordshire based club.

Newts made 51 appearances for The Boro last season, scoring an impressive 16 goals along the way, earning plaudits up and down the country.

“I am delighted to sign this deal and have it all sorted now,” Newton said. “The club have shown great faith in me and I had an incredible season last year.

“I am really encouraged both by the business done in the summer and our start to the season, so I am looking forward to having another great year.”

Stevenage boss Dino Maamria says that a new contract for Newton was always priority.

“Danny is one of our most important players, so it was always important for us to get his future nailed down. He is an excellent striker at this level and he has now been rightly rewarded for his performances at the club.

“Now he can knuckle down, recreate the form that he showed last season and help the team by doing what he does best.”

Two seasons ago, 27 year old Danny was preparing for another season in Non-League Football with Tamworth but after attending our very own Jamie Vardy’s ‘V9 Academy’ he became hot property and was offered the chance to pro with Stevenage almost immediately after the week long camp had finished…what a journey!

Well done Danny, it’s no less than you deserve. We can’t wait to watch you bag another 16 goals again this season! Be Exceptional.
