Ward-Prowse: I´ll keep improving

17 May 2013 16:36

James Ward-Prowse has backed himself to keep improving after a promising first season in the Premier League.

After making his debut against Manchester City on the opening weekend of the campaign, the 18-year-old has gone on to make 13 more league appearances.

This has led to him collecting the Scholar of the Season award at the club's end-of-season dinner and the young midfielder believes he can go on to improve in 2013-14.

"I've got players in the squad that are inspiring me every day," he told the club's official website.

"Each day is a challenge to be the best and by playing with these guys I'm only going to get better. It's been a year for me where I’ve grown in stature and I've felt as though I've matured in every single way."

In particular, Ward-Prowse spoke of the assistance offered by teammate Morgan Schneiderlin.

The 23-year-old Frenchman has made 36 appearances for the club this season and Ward-Prowse says he has been a real help.

"I remember on my debut up at (Crystal) Palace last year, Morgan was the one talking to me and encouraging me, setting the standard, and this year he's done the same.

"He's always been there to help me. I sit next to him in the dressing room too, so he's welcomed me nicely into the group which has made him a real role model for me."
