The talented youngster joined the Crows from Colney Heath and since joining the club the teenager has made 16 appearances.

Royston boss Steve Castle said: “Newton has been excellent. He has performed superb for a 17-year-old and has also raised a few eyebrows with people I know in the professional game.

“He’s been terrific. We have had a problem with the left-back situation but he has helped us with his fitness and is performing very well.

“I’m sure he’ll get some opportunities [at the professional level].

“If he keeps his feet firmly on the ground, which I’m sure he will because he is a tremendous boy, then there is no reason why he couldn’t give it a go.”
