Bio Extra

Signed from Dundee United in September 1989, Adam was an undoubtedly talented midfield player whose performances for Partick Thistle lacked commitment or feeling for the club. Scored twice for the club, against Morton and Alloa in the space of eight days. Travelling from Dundee for matches and training was also unsatisfactory and he was transferred to Forfar Athletic in 1990.
