Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James "Jimmy" Adamson is an English former professional footballer and football manager. He was born in Ashington. Adamson, a right-half, joined Burnley in January 1947 after playing non-league football in his native Ashington and working as a miner. His early career was interrupted by National Service, which he completed with the Royal Air Force, meaning his debut had to wait until February 1951, when Burnley played away to Bolton Wanderers. He played once for the England B team, but never made the full England side. He was an ever-present as Burnley won the 1959-60 Football League Championship and captained the side to the 1962 FA Cup final which they lost against Tottenham Hotspur. He was also named Footballer of the Year in 1962.show more
