Adam Sollitt (born 22 June 1977) is an English former professional footballer who played as a goalkeeper from 1995 to 2012.

Playing career[edit]

Sollitt was promoted to the first team squad of Barnsley and was the club's third choice goalkeeper from 1995 to 1997. Manager Danny Wilson released him, following the club's promotion to the Premiership. He then signed for non league club Gainsborough Trinity who were searching for a replacement for departed veteran Steve Sherwood. His performances earned him the chance to move up a league and at the end of the season he signed for Conference club Kettering Town where he remained for two seasons.

In July, 2000, Sollitt re-signed as a professional, this time for Northampton Town for a fee of £30,000. In his two-year stay at Town, Sollitt played in 16 games for the club before moving to local rivals Rushden & Diamonds in the summer of 2002.

He went on to play for Scarborough, Morecambe, and Worksop Town before moving back to Gainsborough Trinity in 2006. Sollitt signed for Matlock Town in August 2009. Sollitt announced his retirement in 2011 and departed Matlock in 2012.
