Charlie Adam started with Strathclyde and joined Leicester City in 1946 and stayed at Filbert Street until 1951, making one hundred and fifty-eight appearances and scoring twenty-two goals. He was a regular with the Foxes for the whole of his stay there and was equally at home on either flank, but with Mal Griffith a regular on the right Adam operated mostly on the left. He was a member of the Leicester team that went down to Wolverhampton Wanderers by 1-3 in the 1948-49 Cup Final at Wembley on 30th April 1949. He moved to Mansfield Town and made ninety-three appearances and scored six goals in his three year stay at Field Mill before joining Non-League Corby Town where he finished his career in 1955-56. Charlie Adams guested with Leeds United during the war years and played eleven of the eighteen games in the Football League Northern Section (First Championship) of the 1941-42 season from October to December 1941. After his debut he missed only one game in the League and played nine times at Outside-Left and twice at Inside-Left in that Tournament and scored one goal, in his second game at home to Bradford Park Avenue, which United won 4-0, as opposed to the 6-0 drubbing by the same club the previous week. He only missed five of the seventeen games in the Football League Northern Section which ran from Christmas 1941 to May 1942, making twelve appearances, all at Outside-Left and found the net five times in that competition. He also guested with Queens Park Rangers, scoring once in nine games for them in 1940-41. He also played with Leicester City in World War Two, but did not score in three games in 1940-41, four games in 1941-42 and one game in 1945-46. His son, Lee, played with Derby County before moving to Australia with Wollongong Wolves, but returned to play with Bedwith and Leicester United before joining Corby Town as Assistant Manager to Peter Dowsing in March 1998 and took over as Manager in September 1999. His Grandson, Ross, followed the Corby Town association and made his debut in March 1999. Charlie Adam died in 1996.
