Ahead of the brand new 2014 away shirt going on sale to supporters this morning, Hull FC have now confirmed the club’s official squad numbers for next season.

With five new signings already announced for Super League XIX and the club hopeful of adding one or two more before the start of the campaign, new head coach Lee Radford is facing fierce competition for places during pre-season having also handed three promising youngsters full-time deals.

Focusing on rewarding young home-grown talent, 16 players in the current 31-man squad have progressed from the Hull FC academy with three of the club’s brightest young stars handed a squad number in the top 13 for the first time.

It sees Super League Young Player of the Year Ben Crooks rewarded for a stunning season with the number 3, whilst England Knights prop Chris Green has been promoted to the 10 shirt and Albert Goldthorpe Rookie of the Year Tom Lineham will wear 5.

There is also a return to number 6 for club stalwart Richard Horne in the halves alongside mid-season signing Jacob Miller (7), whilst Tongan international Mickey Paea will pull on the 8 jersey having joined the Black and Whites from rivals Hull KR on a two-year contract.

Of the other new signings, Chris Tuson takes the 12 shirt in a highly competitive back row whilst Jordan Thompson comes in at 16. Beverley-born winger Tom Biggs will wear 25 after switching codes from Bath RUFC and former New Zealand international prop Feka Paleaaesina takes number 26.

Elsewhere, Jamie Shaul climbs nine places to number 20 after a breakthrough season that brought ten tries in as many appearances, whilst brothers Bobby and Harry Tyson-Wilson wear numbers 29 and 30 respectively during their first year with the first team squad.

Fellow rookie Reece Dean takes number 31 with hooker Aaron Heremaia retaining his lucky 33 shirt, with the Black and Whites also opting to leave a spot open in the list as they look to strengthen further for 2014.

Meanwhile, fans are reminded that the club’s brand new away shirts sponsored by Bartercard will go on sale from 9am this morning in store and online at priced at £47 for adults and £38 for juniors.

The sea blue design the 2014 home shirt on the shelves in time for Christmas, with season pass holders reminded they can claim £5 off the original price when redeeming their Set of Six voucher.
