Good to see LJL getting his 14 back (his favourite players as a youngster were Thierry Henry and Terry Barwick)

Interesting that a few don't have one on their kit yet. I imagine Clifton will remain 15 and Battersby will be 13.

Taylor I imagine will end up with 9. Hopefully no outrageous numbers. Can't be doing with 2 being a right winger or something daft like that.

I have no idea how old you are but under Nicky Law in 2004 we had at least one match where we had a centre back wearing 9 (Paul Warhurst) and the left back wearing 7 (Craig Armstrong) whilst our left winger wore 3 (Darren Barnard).

And the famous 4-4 at Chesterfield match in front of a 4,444 crowd we ended up with 7 & 9 as centre backs after Greg Young’s shoulder popped out the 2nd time and he had to go off injured.

I never quite understood how Warhurst was deemed 9 worthy. I'm sure Groves wore 11 and played at CB a lot. That's forgiven though because it's Paul Groves.

From memory both Livvo and Groves made very solid Division One centre halves, a reminder of just what good players they were. I think by that point Livvo had reverted to a fairly generic squad number like 12 or 14 though.
