The number 11 was historically worn by the left-sided outside forward, or winger. As the 2–3–5 formation fell out of favour, the 11 morphed into a midfield position, and is now associated with the left side of midfield.

Despite its modern connection with the midfield, from the beginning of squad numbering in 1999 it was used by a series of strikers, starting with Jason Roberts. It wasn't until 2002 that it was used regularly in its traditional position. It was also used many times in defence by Chris Carruthers, who although he played in midfield on occasion, was primarily a left-back.
