Neil Adams

Neil Adams was most recently the manager of Norwich City.

A right-winger, Adams the Canaries from Oldham Athletic for £250,000 in February 1994 - following the £2.2m sale of Ruel Fox to Newcastle.

He was renowned for the accuracy of his crossing and for his deadly prowess from the penalty spot, and was voted into City's Hall of Fame in 2002.

Born in Stoke on November 23, 1965, Adams began his career with Stoke City before securing a First Division championship winners' medal with Everton in 1987. Following his release by City in 1999, Adams rejoined Oldham for two seasons before retiring.

He returned to Norfolk and was initially coach of the Canaries' Academy Under-14 side, while also working in the local media as a BBC Radio Norfolk summariser and newspaper columnist.

Adams later became the Under-18 Academy coach and led the Canaries to their famous FA Youth Cup victory in 2013, convincingly defeating Chelsea in both home and away legs of the final. Source: Norwich City
