Huddersfield Town has today released the squad numbers for the First Team ahead of the new 2015/16 Sky Bet Championship season.
Town’s five First Team recruits have all been allocated numbers. Jason Davidson
takes the left back’s traditional number three shirt, while Dean Whitehead
takes four as Club Captain Mark Hudson shifts to number five.
Other movers in the Town squad include Tommy Smith, who vacates 27 to become the new number two, and Harry Bunn, who moves up to 17 after his breakthrough 2014/15 campaign. Adam Hammill has shifted from 12 to 25; the number he wore during his early days at Liverpool.
The majority of Town’s Development Squad have not been allocated numbers to start the season, as Chris Powell explained to htafc.com.
“I’m a firm believer that young professionals have to earn the right to be allocated a First Team squad number; that is part of the reward for breaking into the senior squad. Hopefully we’ll see several of them earn their number in the 2015/16 campaign!
“I know the release of the players’ squad numbers is always much anticipated, especially by the Club’s younger supporters who want to get their favourite player on the back of their replica shirt. As such, it seemed right that we released these ahead of the home shirt reveal at the Deportivo de La Coruna friendly
