Laurence Edward "Laurie" Adams (born 14 February 1931) is an English former footballer, who played for Watford as an inside left.[1] Born in Barnet (then part of Hertfordshire), he made his sole Football League appearance while doing his National Service. Under the management of Haydn Green, Adams played a full match on 23 February 1952, as Watford defeated Walsall 2–0 in front of a crowd of 8,909 at Vicarage Road.[2] He turned professional upon leaving the army, but did not play another senior game, and left the club at the end of the 1952–53 season.[3] Although at that time professional players were not normally allowed to play amateur football again, Adams subsequently played for Whipton as a permit player in 1955.[3]
