The Tri-Colours Past Players and Members Group was launched in the winter of 2014, and has retained the name used by the Adelaide Cricket Club's Social Committee over many, many years.
Our intention has been to create and retain a Past Players & Members organisation which runs alongside the Adelaide Cricket Club itself, can focus more consistently on the Past Members themselves (without the distraction of day to day club business) and can retain a 'rainy day' fund for the purchase of one-off items deemed outside general club business.
An effective database of people and players who have previously formed some of the history of Adelaide Cricket Club now numbers in the 200's, with ongoing contact generally made by email. Our thanks to those many up-front financial members who we sincerely thank those for their early contribution and trust they take up the opportunity of the subsequent 'freebies' or reduced prices throughout the year at events and catch-ups. Contact Tri-Colours Treasurer, Trevor Neate, on 0402 317 794 or at email@example.com for information regarding membership.

During the 2016/17 year, the Tri-Colours Past Players & Members Group has run a number of events, starting with a Past Players Day watching one of our early T20 games. In December 2016 we ventured up the freeway to the very relaxed Ashbourne Golf Course for a hit, a bbq and a drink.
February 12, 2017 was the date of our latest, annual Past Players & Members Game. This is where it quickly becomes apparent that we are not quite in as good a nick as we'd all like to think ! A nail-biter this time, with Paul Amato's son and the ageless Paul Pasculli stealing a run off the last ball to get "Jobby's Jokes" over the line.
The umpiring quality was questionable, however, with former champions of the club including Hendricks, Kildare, McIntyre, Neate and Pete Williams all quick on the trigger.
