Biography


Adam came through the Hearts youth system, one year behind his brother Billy who also went on to play for United. Before having made a first team appearance, English Premier League side Swansea City made an offer which was rejected by the Tynecastle club. Adam had been an unused substitute on a number of occasions before making his first team debut as a substitute against Celtic in December 2013 and was in the starting eleven twice before the turn of the year.

In January, a further bid from Swansea was accepted and he signed a three-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee. Previously capped at Under-18 and Under-19 levels, Adam was called up for the Scotland Under-21 side in November, making an appearance against Switzerland. A regular in the Swansea Under-21 side, he made his first team debut in January 2015, coming off the bench in an FA Cup tie against Tranmere Rovers. In July 2015, he joined League One side Crewe Alexandra and was a regular during his five month spell at Gresty Road, and in August 2016 he again went out on loan, this time to Southend United, where he played eleven times in the first half of the season before being recalled to Swansea. On his return to the Liberty Stadium he made appearances in the Football League Trophy and the League Cup before he signed on loan for League Two side Mansfield Town.

A further loan deal was agreed in July 2018, this time with Peterborough United, but after just a month the deal was terminated due to injury. The midfielder, who can play can right-back when required, was released by Swansea in the summer of 2019, and after a short trial with United, he signed a three-year contract at Tannadice.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Adam was born on this date in Edinburgh.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Adam came through the Hearts youth system, one year behind his brother Billy who also went on to play for United. Before having made a first team appearance, English Premier League side Swansea City made an offer which was rejected by the Tynecastle club. Adam had been an unused substitute on a number of occasions before making his first team debut as a substitute against Celtic in December 2013 and was in the starting eleven twice before the turn of the year.

  • Some 47 years have passed since United last met Stenhousemuir at Ochilview and Head Coach Robbie Neilson made five changes from the side that drew at Tynecastle last Friday. Liam Smith, Adrian Sporle, Sam Stanton, Nicky Clark and Rachid Bouhenna all dropped out. In came Paul Watson, Calum Butcher, Ian Harkes, Logan Chalmers and Louis Appere who was starting a major competitive game for the first time.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 1 - 0 Partick Th

    The game started badly for Pawlett who was subbed off in the opening minutes of the game and replaced by Appéré after pulling his ham string. United’s first chance of the game fell on the 10th minute as McMullan played the ball to Appéré who attempted to cross the ball low to Shankland. However, the Jags dealt with this passage of play well and attempted a counter attack which came to no avail. Seven minutes later McMullan was one on one with Partick’s keeper after Bannigan gave the ball away in his own half. McMullan still had some running to do but from the center of the box he aimed his shot low for it to be smothered by Fox. After United cleared a Thistle corner on the 22nd minute, Penrice played the ball to Dario Zanatta in the center of the box who volleyed the ball high for it to be saved comfortably by Siegrist in the center of the goal. With ten minutes of the half to go, Miller had the ball in the net for Thistle after a save from Siegrist but the linesman had his flag up quickly much to the dismay of the away fans. Just a minute later, Appéré had a chance to cross the ball but he drilled it towards goal forcing Fox to parry the ball into the Eddie Thompson Stand for a United corner. A largely uneventful first half came to a close after Liam Smith crossed the ball to McMullan who headed the ball into the arms of Fox.
