Micky Adams emerged from the Gills youth team as a winger, but it was playing out of position that really launched his Gills career, and allowed him to go on to bigger and better things in top-flight football. His early appearances on the wing were unconvincing, but a move to left back following an injury to Andy Ford saw him converted into one of the most exciting sights witnessed at Priestfield.
His full-speed dashes down the wing were breathtaking, and his crosses, zipped across goal at pace, led to many goals. He was often only brought to a halt by illegal challenges in and around the penalty area, which also led to further Gills scores. He left Priestfield at the end of the 82-83 season, joining Coventry for a fee of £92,500, leaving the Priestfield faithful to rue his absence.
