There was obvious attention surrounding the striker following his 51 goals last season, including the two which saw Stanway lift the Ridgeons League Cup with victory over Leiston in the final.

But Sam has remained loyal to the Rovers by turning down big money deals and offers from other Ridgeons clubs as well as Ryman League and Southern League clubs to remain at the Rovers for another season.

New first-team manager Steve Downey stated: “I'm delighted to keep Sam. He is an exceptional talent and I hope he can progress from last season's excellent performance.”

Both players have been in pre-season training and look forward to the first friendly on Saturday at Shrub End against Stansted FC.
