"The people here are like family and it feels like home. I can't wait to see what we can achieve together this year and in the future."
Football manager Chris Davies said the club was pleased to have Powell-Pepper recommit to the club.
"Sam has developed his consistency throughout this season and his hunt and pressure on the ball has become a real feature of his game," he said.
"We have seen him mature both as a player and a person in recent years. Because he came straight into the team when he was drafted, we forget he is still just 22 years old."
