Morecambe Appoint Derek Adams New Boss

Former Plymouth Argyle

Adams, 44, arrives at the Globe Arena with an excellent reputation as an EFL manager.

The former Plymouth Argyle boss joins Morecambe on a two-and-a-half-year deal until the end of the 2022 season.

Adams will take charge of the Shrimps after Saturday’s FA Cup tie with Blackpool – Kevin Ellison and Barry Roche will be in-charge at the weekend.

Playing Career

44-year-old Adams counts Ross County and Motherwell among his six previous employers.

During his time in Scotland, Adams made more than 100 league appearances for both sides.

Adams became manager of Ross County in 2007 with whom he won promotion from the Scottish Second Division in his first season.

Two years later Adams navigated Ross County to the Scottish Cup Final.

He then joined Hibernian, as assistant manager, in 2010 before making a return to Ross County twelve months later.

On his second spell at County, Adams won the Scottish First Division and was voted PFA Scotland Manager of the Year for the 2011-12 season.

Adams departed County to become manager of Plymouth Argyle in June 2015.

The 44-year-old took Argyle to the League Two Play-Off Final at Wembley in his first season in charge – they lost to AFC Wimbledon.

In his second season, however, Adams achieved automatic promotion from the fourth tier with a second-place finish.

Adams was sacked by Argyle after finishing seventh in League One during the 2017-18 season.

Morecambe are bottom of League Two but are level on points with 23rd-placed Stevenage.
