Southampton's squad numbers for the upcoming 2017/18 season have been confirmed.

There have been five changes to last season’s numbers, most notably with Fraser Forster returning to his former number 44.

The Saints goalkeeper has personally pledged to replace any 2017/18 shirts that have already been printed and purchased with his old number.

Supporters wishing to replace their 2017/18 goalkeeper shirts with ‘Forster 1’ on the back can do so in person at our Stadium Store or at West Quay.

For online orders, please phone 0845 688 9433 where our a member of our team will be able to assist.

Elsewhere, Jack Stephens moves to number 5, Florin Gardos to 25, Sam Gallagher to 27 and summer signing Jan Bednarek takes up the number 35 shirt.

Please note, any supporters purchasing a 2017/18 shirt with a name and number before midnight on Saturday 12th August will be entered into a prize draw to win a signed shirt from the first team squad or a player of their choice.

Season Ticket holders and Official Members will be automatically entered at the point of sale online or in-store. Supporters without official memberships will be automatically entered online but can also fill out a form in the Stadium Store or at West Quay. Full terms and conditions can be found here.
