The season is nearly upon us, the squad numbers are now out, and the man charged with replacing Marlon King is Tamas Priskin!

The Hungarian mis-hap of a forward has been handed the number nine shirt ahead of the season. No-one has been handed the vacant 10 jersey, so presumably a forward is a target, whilst listed quartert Poom, Jackson, Francis and Doyley retain their numbers.

The big movers are Theo Robinson who is down to 18 from thirty-something, Lionel Ainsworth now at 19 instead of 39 and young’un O’Toole now wearing 26.

Finally, Malky Mackay has not been handed a squad number and I believe is now filling the role of ‘Reserve Team Manager’ and has not registered as a player.
