  1. For 1986 World Cup, Scotland used a numbering system roughly consisting of defenders at lower digits(2-6), midfielders higher(7-11) through to forwards highest(16-21). With the exception of goalkeepers Goram(12), Rough(22), Aitken(4 – although had played as defender in the past), and somd defenders, Nicol(13), Narey(14), Albiston(15). Hence Bannon had the odd number of 9 for a midfielder.
