17 August 2012, 11:12

The squad numbers for Newcastle United's 2012/13 season have been revealed - with keeper Tim Krul opting to take the Number 1 spot.

The Dutch goalkeeper, who has come through the ranks on Tyneside, previously wore the 26 jersey but has opted for the switch this term.

Krul was the Magpies' first choice stopper last term and ended the season with 15 clean sheets as they clinched a fifth-place Premier League finish and a place in the Europa League.

The number one shirt was previously worn by veteran Steve Harper, who will now take on number 37.

New signing Vurnon Anita will be United's new number eight, following the release of Danny Guthrie in the summer, while fellow summer recruits Romain Amalfitano, Gael Bigirimana and Curtis Good have got numbers 17, 20 and 33 respectively.

Young midfielder Mehdi Abeid has swapped from the number 13 shirt to take on 39, while goalkeeper Rob Elliot has also switched from 35 to 21.
