"He's done a magnificent job for us in the past two years and still has a major contribution to make."

And Butcher added: "Richie commands the respect of the players and the management team alike.

"Maurice Malpas and I signed up for new two-year deals and this continuity is maintained by Richie committing for a similar period."
