Squad Numbers Released

Squad Numbers Released

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.

Full 2007-2008 First Team Squad List

1. Mart Poom
2. Matthew Jackson
3. Mathew Sadler
4. Daniel Shittu
5. Leigh Bromby
6. Jay DeMerit
7. Damien Francis
8. John Eustace
9. Tamas Priskin

16. Richard Lee
18. Theo Robinson
19. Lionel Ainsworth
20. Alhassan Bangura
21. Thomas Smith
22. William Hoskins
23. Adrian Mariappa
25. Gareth Williams
26. John-Joe O'Toole
28. Moses Ashikodi
29. Cedric Avinel
30. Junior Osborne
31. Lewis Young
32. Jordan Parkes

34. Dale Bennett

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.

So young Theo gets Ellington and Helgu's old shirt - lets hope he's more of the latter rather than the former...

Lincoln fan here. I see Scott Loach has been given no 13. Do you expect him to be competing for a first team place this season?

I reckon Loachy willbe first choice come December - Poom's experience will invaluable but he's injury prone and Richard Lee is indifferent so expect Scott to shine.
Hope so, it's good to see an ex-player doing well.
