Sheffield United skipper Billy Sharp admits he's proud to be a Blade again after last season's shambolic campaign.
United, under Nigel Adkins, limped to an 11th-placed finish in League One but were promoted yesterday under his successor, Chris Wilder.
And Sharp, who's scored 26 goals so far this term after being named skipper, admitted: "I can't thank the gaffer and the staff enough. Last year was embarrassing and I felt ashamed, but this year I'm so proud to be a Blade.
"Every single one of the lads deserves credit."
