“I’m really happy to be staying at this club and with this team for the next few years," the former Stanley Rangers junior said.

Trinity coach Chris Chester is "delighted Max Jowitt will remain at the club for the next few years".

He said: “Max is a real talent and has been in great form for us this season.
