“Experience is key. You need to try and find the middle ground between the experience and the young ones coming through," Brown said.

"The young ones are what keep us going and we thrive to get better, even at 33 or 34. It’s a good place to be for young ones coming in and it’s a great learning curve as well.

“I’m sure the manager and the board will do fantastic things. They’ll bring in the players that they want to bring in. They’ll be in no rush to go and sign the wrong person," he added.

"They’ll do what they’ve done since I’ve been here which is bring in some fantastic players.”
