LUFC Lonergan number one choice

Andy Lonergan looks like being number one choice goalkeeper at Elland Road after the club released the squad numbers list for the new season.

Leeds have two new keepers at the club this season after the departure of Shane Higgs and Kasper Schmeichel in the summer.

With Paul Rachubka joining from Blackpool and Lonergan from Preston North End it wasn`t clear who Grayson`s number one choice would be.

Rachubka had started the first five pre season games for Leeds, with young Alex Cairns as his back up.

Lonergan only arrived last week and played the full ninety minutes in Leeds 3-2 win over Newcastle United on Sunday to give the first indication of who would be the number one.

Lonergan has been allocated the number one jersey whilst Rachubka will wear the number twelve.

Youngster Cairns has also been allocated a shirt, the only player of the first year professionals from the academy to be awarded one.

Cairns will wear the number thirty when called upon by the team.

New summer signing Michael Brown will wear the number eight shirt.

Transfer listed Mike Grella and Federico Bessone have also been allocated numbers, wearing number thirteen and twenty-one respectively.

Leeds have named twenty-four players in their first team squad with only number six still vacated from the old traditional one to eleven.

There is a lot of pressure on the two keepers with a lot of fans not happy that we didn't bring in a high profile keeper to replace Schmeichel. I just hope they are given a fair chance. There can't be anything worse than your own fans getting on your back.

is there a reason why howson (club captain) didn't get a traditional shirt number? Really surprised Grella has a shirt at all...
