SQUAD NUMBERS

Squad numbers were introduced in 1995 and each Forest player was allocated their number for the 1995-95 season. The 1997-98 season saw us revert (for one year) back to standard 1-11 numbering, but since then the Squad Number (along with a name on the back of the shirt) has been the rule.

Surprisingly enough, the number 18 has been worn by most players (25 different players at the last count).

Here's a table of who's worn each number over the years:
