Derek Adams

The current manager of Morecambe FC.

Adams played professionally for six clubs, including Ross County and Motherwell, where he made more than 100 league appearances for both teams.

He became manager of Ross County in 2007, winning promotion from the Scottish Second Division in his first season, before reaching the Scottish Cup Final two years later.

He joined Hibernian as assistant manager in 2010 before returning to Ross County the following year, where he won the Scottish First Division and was voted PFA Scotland Manager of the Year for the 2011–12 season.

Having left County in 2014, Adams became manager of Plymouth Argyle in June 2015.

In his first season in English football as a manager he guided Plymouth Argyle to the League 2 Play-Off Final at Wembley for the first time in 20 years, which they lost to AFC Wimbledon.

In the following season, Adams guided them to a second-place finish and promotion to League One.

In the 2017–18 season, Plymouth just missed out on a promotion play-off place as they finished seventh in League One.
