Mayhew Stays

Stowmarket Town are delighted to announce striker Josh Mayhew has committed to the club for the 2021-22 season.

The frontman, who turned 30 this week, has topped the scoring charts for the Old Gold and Blacks ever since arriving at Greens Meadow in 2017.

Mayhew scored a stunning 56 goals in his debut campaign in 2017-18 and has since gone on to take that tally to 125 goals in 132 games.

Stow manager Paul Musgrove’s squad is taking shape ahead of the upcoming campaign, with Mayhew joining Robbie Sweeney, Tom Bullard, Chris Casement, Jack Ainsley, Ollie Brown and James Bradbrook in re-signing, while Anthony Spyrou bolsters the striking options as the club’s first new arrival.

“Josh is no stranger to any of the Stow fans,” Musgrove said. “We’re really delighted to have him for another season.

“He’s a lad who keeps improving. He recently had his 30th birthday and we want someone of his calibre with us.

“He keeps leading the line year in, year out and has continued to improve his game.”
