Squad numbers

The 12 shirt is the only number to have been retired by Bristol Rovers, and is included on squad lists with the name 'Gasheads' next to it to show that it represents the fans as the twelfth man in the side.

In the days before squad numbers the number 12 on a football team was traditionally worn by the first (or only) named substutite. Since the introduction of squad numbers in 1999 just four players were allocated the number 12 jersey before its eventual retirement in 2003.
