Former Sandhurst and Bendigo Pioneers player Flynn Perez will wear number 39 in his first season with AFL club North Melbourne.
The Kangaroos announced their new jumper numbers this week, with Perez to take over the number 39 from 2019 rookie listed player Tom McKenzie.
The most recent number 39 of note at the Kangaroos was small forward Leigh Harding, who played 141 games in the 39 jumper between 2001 and 2010.

Perez's Bendigo Pioneers team-mate Brodie Kemp has been given the number 17 by his new club Carlton.
It's the same number former Pioneers and Eaglehawk star Damien Lock wore in his 18 games for the Blues in the late 1990s.
Kemp, from Echuca, was selected by the Blues with pick 17 of the national draft.
The other two Pioneers' products selected in the draft have also been given their numbers.
Thomson Dow will wear 27 with Richmond, while Brady Rowles has number 39 at the Sydney Swans.
