Greg Cunningham, Ben Whiteman and Ched Evans have got new numbers - Cunningham will wear No.3, Whiteman 4 and Evans 9.

New boys Izzy Brown and Matthew Olosunde will wear 20 and 22 respectively, although Brown is ruled out for several months after having surgery on a torn Achilles tendon.

Josh Earl, who did have the No.3 shirt, reverts to 32 which he had when he first broke into the first-team squad.

The numbers filled by Whiteman and Evans were vacant after the departures of Ben Pearson in January and Louis Moult during the summer.

Teenage midfielder Lewis Leigh will wear 17 - Whiteman's old number - with first-year scholars Noah Mawene given 36 and Josh Seary 37.

All the other players will keep their numbers from last season.
