Everton have announced the official squad numbers for the new season, with John Stones the No.5 jersey synonymous with Goodison defensive greats.
The 21-year-old centre half swaps the No.26 jersey that he has worn over the last two seasons for the one bizarrely filled by striker Samuel Eto'o last season.
Gerard Deulofeu and Tom Cleverley will wear No.19 and No.15 respectively.
New permanent signing David Henen has been handed No.53.

I also happen to believe that football should adopt the cricket method of numbering, ie, each individual player is assigned a unique number (431, 1999 etc) and the actual shirt number should revert to the once familiar 1-11.

Speaking of which the EFC commercial department have surely missed a trick in not allocating Lukaku Number 9 and Deulofeu Number 10. No surprise there.
