Nicky Adams has spent the last 17 seasons in League football with several clubs including Leicester City. He was a player at the club from 2008 to 2010 adding up 30 league appearances and part of the League One winning side of the 2008/09 campaign.
At the age of 35 he is still looking for more as he has signed for Radcliffe in tier 7. This will be a step down from previously and frequently playing at League One and League Two clubs for most of his career.
Nicky Adams joined his new club now in June and with his grand experience from EFL football seen as a clever move and also scoring in his first game after just three minutes.
He will be of importance as Radcliffe will try to bring more momentum to their game and fight for promtion up to the top shelf of the non-league pyramid. They ended 16th in their division last season and hopefully with the broad experience of Nicky Adams moving up a few steps.
Frank Worthington did appear for Radcliffe back in 1989-1990 as his journey of clubs became many. This was in no way the last chapter of clubs for the famous fox as he continued to play for Guiseley, Hinckley Town, Cemaes Bay and Halifax Town before hanging up his boots in 1992.
To be part of the build Radcliffe has also this summer added former Galatasaray midfielder Jem Karacan to their squad. The 33 year old Turkey U.21 international might be most known in English football for his many seasons at Reading. He joined from Scunthorpe after their relegation out of EFL football last season.
On a list of former notable players you will also find Chris Makin and Neil Danns. Looking further on that list of players West Ham defender Craig Dawson is one, former England internationals Peter Barnes and Alan Kennedy are others. So to follow up on Radcliffe and Nicky Adams will be a topic for next season.
You can always follow up on all our former foxes still in the game from our “where are they now” section and as you see a number of them are on the hunt for a new club.
