Charlie Adams joined Boro on a one-month deal on Friday

Charlie Adams says he is ready to make the step up to becoming a Football League player.

The 20-year-old joined Stevenage on a one-month loan deal last week, and made his debut for Boro as a substitute in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Accrington Stanley.

Adams is a product of Brentford’s Centre of Excellence and made his Football League debut in March 2013 against Carlisle United, while under the guidance of Uwe Rosler.

Since then, the midfielder has made five further appearances for the Bees and has also played five times for Barnet on loan.

Speaking about his move, Adams said: “I only got the call at 8am on Friday to advise me of the loan move to Stevenage, which came as a nice surprise. It was an unusual day for me; as I had to drive to west London to pick up my boots; then drive to Stevenage to make the 11am training session.

“While at Brentford, I’ve been working hard in training, and feel that I am ready to make the step-up from the U21s to establish myself as a Football League player.

“It’s been great to play under Mark Warburton and the other coaching staff at Brentford. The set-up at Brentford is great, and is conducive to the development of young players like myself, which I am hugely grateful.

“However, with a new ground on the horizon and promotion to the Championship, it brings an extra layer of expectation on the club.

“What’s more, the team has been doing well, which makes it increasingly difficult to establish myself as a first team regular, which is why I believe the loan move to Stevenage will be good for me.”
