2012 Season
The Adastrians Cricket Club was established in 1924 and in its heyday had many esteemed players such as
Raman Subba Row (Surrey and England) and Fred Truman (Yorkshire and England). In recent years the
Club has seen a diminishing playing membership which threatens its future as it becomes more and more
difficult to field a competitive team throughout a full season of fixtures. The committee has therefore decided
to reduce the Club’s commitment to a few prestigious occasions in the hope that it will appeal to new players
and thus secure its future through the next generation of members. Whether playing in a home match in the
idyllic setting of Vine Lane or away against the Royal Household in the shadow of Windsor Castle and against
the Cross Arrows CC at Lords; the enclosed programme, for 2012, provides a mouth-watering prospect of
quality opposition at classic cricketing venues. We are sure that the whole package will appeal to the RAF’s
cricketers, both ‘new blood’ and ‘old hands’ alike. There are also opportunities for great social events
including a dinner in the exclusive Long Room in the Lords Pavilion for those who show commitment to the
Adastrians throughout the season. The Lords academy will be the venue for our pre-season net session and
the annual dinner, open to old and new members, will be held in the impressive surroundings of the RAF Club
on the edge of Green Park in central London.

The Adastrians has historically presented a development opportunity for players with potential to represent the
RAF in its Senior XI. We will be working closely with the RAF Eagles and Under 25’s squads in 2012 to reestablish the Adastrian CC’s place in the development of young RAF players. We will do this by ensuring a
suitable standard of opposition to challenge young players and by providing player feedback to the RAFCA
coaching and management organisations.

The Adastrians is an all-ranks club with an enviable team ethos where, first and foremost, everyone is out to
enjoy a competitive game of cricket in the right spirit of the game. When you play for the Adastrians CC you
are representing the RAF in a recognised match which therefore attracts the benefits of duty travel from
anywhere in the UK.
