PLAYER DEBUT ORDER
The following is a list of all those players who have played at least one game for the Adelaide Football Club. Apart from the first 20 players listed they appear in the order they debuted for the Club. Where two or more players played their first game on the same day they are allocated a number according to alphabetical order of surname. Whilst it could be argued that all of those who played in the Club’s first game should all be given a symbolic Number 1 it was decided to award this to the Captain, Chris McDermott and number 2 to his deputy, Tony McGuinness. The rest of the team were given the numbers 3 to 20 in order of their playing (guernsey) number.
