“We are delighted that Mark has committed to us for another season. He was a key member of the squad during the 19/20 campaign, scoring some very important goals for us including some high-quality finishes.

“Mark is another one of the players who was out of contract but has also resigned to keep together the majority of last seasons successful squad.”
