Biography

English born Adam started in the youth ranks at Blackburn Rovers before being released at the age of sixteen due to a serious back injury. Following his recovery, he joined Preston North End's youth team and in 2008 he signed professionally and went on to spend four seasons at Deepdale competing in the EFL Championship. During this time he also represented Northern Ireland (via parentage) in a friendly, before going on to also represent the Republic of Ireland at U21 level. In February 2012, Adam suffered a triple leg break and a dislocated ankle ruling him out of action for Preston, before leaving the club.

Post-recovery, three seasons at Coventry City in EFL League One followed before he moved to Portsmouth for the 2015-16 season. The following season, Adam signed for Partick Thistle and as a first team regular, he spent two years playing in the SPFL Premiership with the Firhill side, earning the club's Player of the Year award at the end of his first campaign.
