Versatile defender Aaron Hayden signed an initial one-year contract at the end of July 2019 following a successful trial period with the club.
This was renewed in January 2020, for a further 18 months, and he secured another 12-month spell at the club when a clause in his contract was triggered at the end of the 20/21 season, with him having shown leadership qualities on and off the pitch when he was appointed as vice-captain for that campaign.
Croydon-born Hayden had a period in the youth system at Chelsea before moving north to join the Wolves academy as a 16-year-old in 2015. He enjoyed loan moves with Newport County, Hemel Hempstead Town, Bromley and Telford whilst with the Molineux outfit.
Prior to his arrival in Cumbria he spent almost 18-months on loan from Wolverhampton with Southern League Premier Division Central outfit Stourbridge.
Aaron made 49 appearances during the 2020/21 season, scoring five goals.
