Numbers game

7 August 2012

The Blades have today announced their squad numbers for the 2012/13 season. The new summer signings all have their allocated numbers, whilst there are a number of changes for the existing players.


As expected Mark Howard takes over the number one jersey following the departure of Steve Simonsen, whilst Darryl Westlake takes over the number 2 following Matt Lowton's transfer. Former Skipper Chris Morgan's retirement means Harry Maguire has taken the number 5 shirt.


Kevin McDonald will be wear 11 and Ryan Flynn will play in the 7 shirt, while Stephen Quinn will retain his favourite number 28 jersey.


Tony McMahon, who scored the opening goal at Morecambe on Saturday has been given the same number he had at Middlesbrough - 29.


Players who have progressed through to the first team squad from the Academy are numbered in the new list, Joe Ironside, who has netted twice in the Blades summer games has the number 24 while Callum McFazdean, who has featured in a number of pre-season games, has number 26.
