Arthur Adey
centre forward
1951-1954

Although hailing from Scotland, Adey joined Rovers from the Durham amateur club, Bishop Auckland, signing professional forms in September 1950. A raw-boned centre forward, Adey managed 10 League goals in 48 games, but he was unpopular with the Belle Vue crowd because he displaced their favourite, Ray Harrison. Adey was transferred to Gillingham in July 1954 but he failed to settle in Kent and had a longer, though not greatly productive, spell at Bradford Park Avenue before drifting out of the full-time game.
