Squad numbers

The number 32 was not used in English league football until the introduction of squad numbers into the club game. This was initially done by the Premier League in 1993, followed by the Football League in 1999.

The player with by far the most appearances wearing the number 32 is Aaron Lescott, who made 199 league appearances in six years with that squad number.
