The beauty of this badge is its utter opacity. It is believed that the team gain an average of 12 points a year from opposition defenders drifting off into a reverie during the gathering for a corner, wondering what Air Source Development might mean. The words, if you say them to yourselves a number of times in a row while staring at a picture of Matt Allwright, will clear your brain of all meaning. It is like pouring sand on a water spill. One will suddenly rouse in the same clothes one was wearing on Sunday, a few pounds lighter and feeling completely drained of language.

The image on the club crest is a nice accompaniment to the words, being blue, vague and infinite. Air Source Development. There is a completely immersive beauty in these three words that, while apparently attempting to clarify something specific, convey absolutely nothing whatsoever. Cameron Carter
