Wes Brown says his game has come on leaps-and-bounds after filling in this season for crocked Manchester United captain Gary Neville.
The England defender said: "Playing week-in, week-out helps you improve and gives you more confidence. I've definitely found that this season.
"It's been pleasing to play so many games and I hope I've done okay.
"To be part of a team I have supported all my life is a great honour.
"I can see this team winning many trophies in the coming seasons and it will be great to share in that success."
