Date of birth

Northern Ireland

Snapped up on a two-year deal from Portsmouth last summer, Adam further increases competition within the U’s attack.

Aged 28, this former Northern Ireland international started his career with Aston Villa but, unable to break into the first-team, took the decision to join Southern League outfit Hednesford Town in March 2010. Nevertheless, Adam’s stay at Keys Park was brief, with Tranmere swooping for his services just five months later. He plied his trade at Prenton Park for three years, bagging 12 goals in 89 games before injury prompted his release during the summer of 2013. He moved on to Burton, with whom he won a League Two winners medal at the conclusion of the 2014/15 season. A bustling and physical presence in the frontline, he scored 15 goals during 68 starts for the Brewers before transferring to Portsmouth in June 2015. Despite netting on his Pompey debut against Derby County, one of three goals in his first nine matches, an unfortunate ankle knock curtailed Adam’s progress at Fratton Park. An undoubted talent, he ended the campaign with six goals prior to his move to the Cambs Glass Stadium.
