Adams followed long serving Waders boss Chris Nunn when he announced his departure after the final game of the season, before taking the assistant managers role at St Ives this week.

The popular Adams tweeted: “Following two really enjoyable seasons at Biggleswade the time has come for me to move on.”

“Thanks to Chris Nunn for taking me as his assistant, to all the players for their energy and to the supporters who have been superb. Good luck Lee Allinson.”

The uncompromising ‘Bully’ was appointed by Nunn for the 2016-17 campaign and earned instant respect from the ‘Green Army,’ as the Waders recorded their highest ever finish in English football, storming to seventh in what Nunn described as a ‘brilliant year.’

Adams will act as number two to Ricky Marheineke for the Ives, and will be back at Langford Road in the away dugout in the new Southern League Central next season.
