“Obviously, I’m very happy,” said Maunder. “It’s a club that myself and my family have had a big association with for a number of years. For a player like myself, the club ticks every box....

Baxter said: “I don’t mind telling you, it’s the biggest question that goes through my mind every time I re-sign...
