Adie Harris is a veteran who at 42 takes the category to a whole new level. Despite his advancing years and diminutive size Adie is still more than quick enough to beat most full-backs and has put in plenty of match winning performances to make him a firm fans favourite. He made a surprise return to the City fold when Chris Burns swooped to bring him back to Meadow Park for a third spell in July 2002 and despite early skepticism as to if he could still make an impact Adie proved all doubters wrong and proved to be an inspired signing. His work rate shamed other players nearly half his age and that allied to his impact on matches saw him fully deserve his Supporter's Player of the Year award. Despite some increasing injury niggles Adie has repeatedly fought back to fitness and despite a change in manager remains a potent attacking threat in the squad.

Adie's return certainly helped some of City's younger aspiring wide players like Lee Smith and Tom Webb and his runs were a major factor in City's FA Trophy run to the quarter-finals in 2003. His game is primarily about his lightening pace but also has some neat tricks and shows great awareness of the players around him. A bubbly character in the dressing room he also briefly, if reluctantly, assumed player-coach responsibilities in January 2006 between Burns leaving Meadow Park and the arrival of Tim Harris as manager. Denies he still gets a game because his Dad (4 years older?) is now the boss, but can lay claim to the first goal of the Tim Harris City reign with a strike at Grantham in January 2006.

Adie was first brought to Gloucester by Brian Godfrey way back in 1987 and was an important member of the City side that won the old Midland Division in 1988/89. He then moved on to Trowbridge and won further honours there before John Murphy took him back with him to City when he became manager in the summer of 1994. Adie didn't make quite the same impact in his second spell at the club and went on to spend many seasons with Cinderford. Despite a long senior playing career he is rightly proud of having collected only three bookings in all that time.
