"I’ve really enjoyed my time in the North East since joining the club a few years ago, and there is a great set-up here at Kingston Park," said New-Zealand born Mayhew, who is also qualified with England.

"We have a good core of players at the moment with a mixture of both youth and experience, and I’m delighted to have committed my future to the club."

"He has excellent leadership skills too, both on and off the pitch which is invaluable at this level, and he is another excellent re-signing for the club as we continue to build for the future."
