Jimmy Adam

James (Jimmy) ADAM.

Scot Jimmy Adam was spotted by the Town whilst playing for Spennymoor and despite fierce opposition from several top flight clubs they got their man when he signed on the dotted line in July 1953.
Enjoying skill in abundance and able to play on either wing, his only fault was a lack of finishing power which meant that he had long spells out of the side. Miffed at not being part of the 1959 Cup final team he left Luton that summer for Aston Villa and from then on to Stoke and Falkirk before emigrating to Australia where he played for his adopted country as well as becoming a successful coach.
Jim and his Luton born wife Enid were guests of the club at a game during a holiday return to the UK in 2004. Jim sadly passed away in Australia in September 2008.
