The number 34 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 first player to be allocated number 34 was Lewis Hogg in his first season as a professional footballer, but he didn't make any league appearances that year, leaving loanee Neil Ross to become the first man to wear it during a match.
