The experienced player joined in the 2020 January transfer window from Northampton Town on a permanent deal until June 2022.

Adams played a major part in the Cobblers promotion from Sky Bet League Two last campaign, producing 12 assists, the most in Keith Curle’s squad. 

The Northampton captain, who has won back-to-back promotions from the division, has amassed over 600 career appearances, reaching the milestone back in November and has featured 16 times during the latest campaign.

Born in Bolton, he began his career at Bury FC where he netted 15 goals resulting in Leicester City swooping in for his signature. In 2009, he achieved his first promotion in his career as he helped get the Foxes back to the Sky Bet Championship.

After a few loan spells, he put pen-to-paper on a deal with Rochdale notching over 60 appearances for the club. Adams then went on to ply his trade at Crawley Town and Rotherham United before returning to Bury for a year.

In 2015, Chris Wilder brought the attack-minded player to Northampton and, in that season, the club won the League Two title with Adams catching the eye and being named in the PFA Team of the Year.

Adams, now 34, added another promotion to his CV when he returned to the Shakers for a third spell, he featured heavily in the starting XI making 17 assists as they finished runners-up in 2018/19.
