POLL: Ipswich Town release squad numbers - What’s your favourite?
Ipswich Town have released their squad numbers for the forthcoming season.
The list reveals a new number nine and 10 with Daryl Murphy taking the shirt of the departed Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, and David McGoldrick replacing the transfer-listed Michael Chopra, who has been given the number 28 shirt, respectively.
New signing Cole Skuse has been handed the number 8 shirt, worn by Guirane N’Daw last season, while Paul Anderson has been handed the number 11 jersey, vacated by Lee Martin.
Goalkeeper Dean Gerken has been given Josh Carson’s number 22 shirt, with the Northern Irishman dropping down one to 23, while Frank Nouble retains his number 35 squad number.
The number 6 shirt remains empty and is likely to be filled by a new centre-back with manager Mick McCarthy, who we understand has offered a deal to Christoph Berra, running the rule over trialists Bongani Khumalo and Titus Bramble.
Tommy Smith, meanwhile, is the new owner of the number five shirt, having played number 20 most recently.
