Adam was born on the 14th March 1989 at Lincoln County Hospital. A very popular and respected young man, he lived all his life in Cherry Willingham and attended Reepham Primary School where he spent many happy days before leaving for Cherry Willingham Community School where he was appointed head boy in 2004. A very modest young man, he originally didn’t want to be head boy, though with a little persuasion he decided to go for it and he didn’t regret it one bit.
During his short life he had belonged to Cherry Willingham and Reepham Tennis Club, Cherry Judo Club and played badminton for many years at the school. His passion was football and he spent many years with Cherry Colts in the MidLincs Youth League before going on to play for Welton boys and Scampton Hawks for a year apiece. In 2005, he joined the Lincoln Sunday League with Moorlands Railway and enjoyed two promotions before moving on to Plough Athletic at the end of 2007 where he played his final few football matches.
After Leaving Cherry Willingham Community School in 2005, Adam went on to do a BTEC National Sport and Fitness Diploma at Lincoln College, which he passed with very high grades. After being offered places at several universities, Adam began a three year course in Sport Development and Coaching at Lincoln University in September 2007.
Sadly, on New Years Day 2008 Adam suffered a brain haemorrhage and after spending three days in Lincoln County Hospital, intensive care unit and one day at Nottingham Queens Medical Hospital, he passed away on the 4th January 2008. Adam had been fit and healthy showing no signs of illness and had spent New Years Eve with some of his closest friends having a wonderful time and was extremely happy.
