Adam John Shantry (born 13 November 1982) is an English cricketer. He is a left-handed batsman and a left-arm medium-fast bowler.

Shantry made the bold move of playing for Balwyn CC (unfortunately without success) before playing for Shropshire as a youngster, joining Northamptonshire in 2003 and then moving to Warwickshire two years later. In 2007 he played two first-class matches for Warwickshire taking four wickets but he was released at the end of the season.[1] He subsequently signed a two-year deal with Glamorgan.[2] and scored his first ever 100 against Leicestershire on 6 August 2009 he also has a SC. He announced his retirement in August 2011, having failed to recover from a persistent knee injury.[3] In all he claimed 90 wickets in 32 first-class games at an average 24.60.

Born in Bristol, Shantry's father, Brian also played county cricket, for Gloucestershire.

Shantry is a devoted Bristol City fan and follows them around the country in the cricket off-season. Adam and his wife Sam, whom he married on October 27, 2013, now live in Llantwit Fardre, South Wales.

In September 2013, Shantry was part of a group who swam the English Channel in memory of former teammate Tom Maynard, who died in 2012. He hopes to raise £10,000 for the Tom Maynard Trust.[4]
