Adrian Coote (born 30 September 1978 in Belton,[2] nr Great Yarmouth) is a former professional footballer.

Coote, a striker, came through the youth system at Norwich City, for whom he scored 3 goals in 61 appearances. While at Carrow Road, he won six full international caps with Northern Ireland.

Norwich sold Coote to Colchester United for £50,000,[2] but was unable to establish himself in the side, and, after a loan spell at Bristol Rovers where he scored once against Leyton Orient,[3] he was released by Colchester shortly after the start of the 2003-04 season.

Since leaving Layer Road, Coote has played for a series of non-league clubs in Norfolk including Wroxham.

Coote, who is now a sales manager for Brighthouse, said: “I did have some injury problems. I just fell out of love with football and am now moving on with my life - which is a good life.”[2]
