Coombes was scouted by Chelsea while playing Sunday league football for Sutton United 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.
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.
Yeovil Town (loan)
On 15 November 2010, Coombes was loaned out to Football League One club Yeovil Town on a month's youth loan, and made his debut five days later, in a 2–3 away defeat against Charlton Athletic. He made three substitute appearances before returning to Chelsea.
On 1 August 2013 Coombes signed for Notts County. 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.
On 22 January 2016, it was announced that Coombes had signed for National League side Bromley. He scored his first goal for the club in a 3–1 defeat away to Gateshead on 23 April. He was released by the club at the end of the season.
On 25 August, it was announced that Coombes had signed for Welling United, linking up with Mark Goldberg, whom he worked under at Bromley. Coombes proved prolific in the first half of the 2016-17 season for Welling United. Between August and January 1, 2017 he scored 29 goals in 24 matches in all competitions, including a rare double hat-trick in a 7-1 FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round victory over Swindon Supermarine on October 1, 2016. The double hat-trick equaled Welling United's 'most goals in a match' club record set in 1985 by John Bartley.
Coombes continued prolific goal-scoring form into 2017, and left Welling United for Sutton United on February 22, 2017 with a 0.83 goals ratio (a goal every 103 minutes) from 20 League matches for the Wings.
On 24 February 2017, Coombes returned to boyhood club Sutton United after impressing at Welling United. On 25 February, Coombes made his debut for Sutton in a 3-2 victory against Torquay United at Plainmoor. On 28 February, Coombes made his first home appearance in a 1-0 victory over Boreham Wood, assisting the game's only goal for Maxime Biamou.
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.
