SHIRT TALES: TOWN’S ICONIC NUMBER 3s

7 June 2021

A look back at notable figures Town players who wore number 3

- Squad numbers were introduced during the 1999/00 season
- Harry Toffolo currently wears the number 3 shirt
- Paul Dixon also wore the shirt for a number of seasons

The number 3 shirt has been typically worn by left-backs since permanent numbers were introduced ahead of the 1999/00 season.

Keeping with that trend, the shirt is currently held by left-back Harry Toffolo, who joined the Club in January 2020 from Lincoln City when the Cowley brothers were in charge. Since joining the Terriers, the left back has made 51 appearances and has scored three goals.

Before Toffolo joined the team, the shirt number hadn’t been used since the 2017/18 season when Scott Malone joined the Premier League side from Fulham, where he also held the number 3 shirt. Malone played with Town for the whole 2017/18 campaign which consisted of him making 22 appearances for the Terriers.

The shirt number was also assigned to Australian international Jason Davidson in the 2015/16 season. The left back, who currently plays for Korean side Ulsan Hyundai, made 27 appearances for Town and scored one goal.
