Tigers retired jerseys not honoured by United

Melbourne United has decided to make available the jersey numbers that were retired by the Melbourne Tigers.

Numbers such as Andrew Gaze’s #10 and Lanard Copeland’s #21 and many other Tigers legends are now able to be used by Melbourne United players.

In the case of Warrick Giddey’s retired #6 and Lanard Copeland’s #21 they have been taken by Nate Tomlinson and Greg Page (a development player).

This discovery will further anger Tigers fans who believe that retired jersey numbers should be honoured and untouched by Melbourne United despite their claims the two sides are different.
