Tigers announce squad numbers and back-of-shirt deal renewal

We now know what will appear on the backs of City’s players shirts in 2012/13 after the club announced both the squad numbers and secondary sponsors yesterday. There is only one change to numbers 1-15, with  ‘keeper Eldin Jakupović taking the number 1 jersey after it was vacated by Adriano Basso.

Seyi Olofinjana swaps 30 for 16 (James Harper’s in 2011/12) and Nick Barmby’s 18 is unallocated, we wonder if that is a conscious choice. With the exception of Jakupović, the new signings get high numbers in a squad set that seems based on continuity. Ben Amos gets 22, Abdoulaye Faye 23, Sone Aluko 24, .Alex Bruce 28 and Nick Proschwitz takes number 33, which is unlikely to denote his importance to the team given the money paid for him.

Underneath the numbers, the logo of Scientific Laboratory Supplies (SLS) will appear for a second season after the Hessle based pipette and Petri dish suppliers  renewed their back of shirt deal. This is SLS’ third year of having their mark on City kit, having begun as back of shorts sponsor in 2010/11
