Adam Julian Coombes (born 19 June 1991) is an English footballer who plays for Notts County as a Striker. He was previously known as Adam Phillip, but officially changed his surname in July 2012 to adopt the use of his mother's maiden name.[1]

Club career[edit]

Chelsea[edit]

Coombes was scouted by Chelsea while playing Sunday league football for a local club and being offered a chance to join the Chelsea Academy. His progress continued and he was offered a two-year scholarship from the start of the 2007-08 season.

The 2011–12 season started with good form shown and a reserve team goal scored in the opening month but then the highly unfortunate run of injuries continued. In August 2011, Coombes suffered a knee injury, being sidelined for six to nine months.[2]

In January 2012 Coombes signed a 12-month extension to a contract that had six months to run, and returned from injury towards the end of the season to make three substitute appearances. He was released by Chelsea with 6 months still remaining on his contract in January 2013 to give him a better chance in finding a club before those released in the summer.[3]

Yeovil Town[edit]

On the 15 November 2010, Coombes was loaned out to Football League One club Yeovil Town on a month's youth loan,[4] and made his debut five days later, in a 2–3 away defeat against Charlton Athletic.[5] He made three substitute appearances before returning to Chelsea.

Notts County[edit]

On 1 August 2013 Coombes signed for Notts County.[6] On 27 August 2013, he scored the equalizing goal with his first touch after coming on as a substitute against Liverpool in a 4-2 defeat at Anfield in the League Cup.[7]
