Abram cut his coaching teeth with Chorley Lynx in National League Two and was taken on by Leigh Centurions, with a view to taking them into the Super League, in October 2003.[2] He accomplished this in his first season as Leigh beat Whitehaven in a dramatic NL1 Grand Final. Leigh's Super League season of 2005, however, proved a disaster and the club were relegated after winning just two games, with Abram leaving in August 2005.[3] He was appointed Rochdale coach in November 2005, as successor to Bobbie Goulding, who had resigned two weeks earlier. Abram parted company from Rochdale Hornets in July 2007.
