Town chief executive Julian Winter said: "During Mark’s days as a player, when he led the club to promotion as captain, we knew we potentially had a very good coach on our hands and that is certainly becoming the case. As such, we are delighted that Mark has signed this new contract today.

"After doing some great work in the Academy, he has stepped up and become an important part of our first team coaching structure under Jan Siewert. Mark is still learning but has already offered great support to Jan through a difficult period last season."

Head coach Siewert added: "I am very happy that Mark has committed his future to us. He is rightly a well-respected figure around the club and he is become an important part of my coaching team."
