Although Stewart picked up an injury in the latter part of the season, he was an important player for head coach Nick Jennings.

“I would like to thank the club and coaches for the opportunity to re-sign with the squad and look forward to another season,”said Stewart, 32.

Hill too played a crucial role in the 2021 campaign, having to step in on several occasions to strengthen the defence as the competition for the top four spots were tightening.

Jennings is delighted both players have re-signed with the team.
