This morning Watford have released the first team squad numbers for the forthcoming 2012/13 season.

The list does show number changes for first team regulars Jonathan Hogg and Sean Murray. All the new signings have been included in the squad list with Fitz Hall taking the number 6 shirt and striker Steve Leo Beleck taking number 13. New goalkeeper Manuel Almunia also takes the number 1 jersey.

Of interest to Hornets fans will be that Troy Deeney has retained his number 9 shirt for this season. This could be the clearest indication yet that the new regime intend to keep Deeney at the club despite his prison sentence. Here is the full first team squad numbers list for the 2012/13 season:
