Huddersfield Town story posted by Sean Makin on 24/03/2005
The former Macclesfield and Stockport County left back has signed for Town on non-contract terms till end of the season.Profile-Danny Adams
Danny began his career as a junior at Bury but didn?t earn a professional contract. He signed for non-league Congleton Town in 1997, his performances interested the then Macclesfield manager Sammy McIlroy but with the move not coming off Danny joined Altrincham instead, after playing some matches for Altrincham reserves and whilst turning out for non-league Congleton Town and Sunday League side Packet House along side a now Stockport County player Chris Byrne. But the signing for Altrincham nearly didn?t happen as Doncaster Rovers attempted to sign Danny but the deal fell through.

He was a regular in the Altrincham side for three seasons winning a number of awards including player of the year for the 1999-2000 season. Danny?s performances caught the eye of Telford United but Adams turned down the move but in the summer of 2000 Macclesfield Town again showed interest and in September of 2000 he made the switch for a fee of ?25,000 allowing Danny to give up his job as a postman.

Danny was a regular at Macclesfield playing over 170 games but in February of 2003 he requested a transfer after failing to agree a new contract. That caught the attention of the manager who brought Adams to Macclesfield, Sammy McIlroy who was then the Stockport manager took Danny on trial.
After one reserve game he was signed for a nominal fee shortly after making his debut as a loan player against Bristol City.

Stockport see him as a fans favourite after winning over the Edgeley Park crowd, he has a no nonsense approach and they say not many wingers will get past this Mancunian.
