Adams offers grateful thanks to the club as he signs for Sky Bet League 2 side

22 January 2021

Winger Nicky Adams has left Northampton Town to join Sky Bet League 2 side Oldham Athletic.

34 year old Adams made 63 appearances in his second spell with the club, but has found his opportunities a little more limited this season, starting ten games in Sky Bet League 1.

"Nicky played a big part in our promotion last season and he will always be remembered fondly for his two spells with the club," said manager Keith Curle.

"Everyone knows the relationship that Nicky has with the club and also my own relationship with him having signed him twice, but after having various conversations with Nicky this transfer window, this move makes a lot of sense for him for a number of reasons.

“Having the security of an 18 month contract was obviously important plus the location worked well with his young family, but also Nicky, with his personality, wants to be playing 90 minutes week in, week out and Oldham know they have a player who will produce for them.

"Nicky is a first class professional who has served this club extremely well and he leaves with our very best wishes."

Adams himself added: "Everyone knows how much I think of the club, I hold it very dear to my heart and this was a very tough decision for me to make. I just felt at that this stage of my career, it was the right thing for me and my family.

"I have been away from my family for a long time and this will bring me closer to them at the right time.

"I have been superbly treated by everyone at Northampton Town and I can't thank the club enough. I must thank the Chairman, Keith of course who I have a very special relationship with, all of the staff, my team mates and the supporters.

"Whether it be last season or this season, the club have always done the right thing by the players and have looked after us superbly through the pandemic and that is something I will never forget.

"We created some great memories together that I will never forget and although it was a tough decision to leave, it is the right decision at the right time for all of us.

"I will always hold the club and the people at the club in the highest regard."
