Class of 96/97

Tuesday 14 November 2017 16:00

Former Fulham Manager Micky Adams will return to Craven Cottage on Saturday to meet fans and sign copies of his new autobiography, My Life In Football.

Adams joined the Whites as a player in the summer of 1994, but it was his time in the dugout for which he is most fondly remembered.

Having taken charge midway through the 1995/96 season, Adams helped steer the Club clear of the very real possibility of relegation from the Football League.

He spent that summer rebuilding his squad on a shoestring budget, putting together a close knit group of hard working individuals who defied the odds to win promotion from the old Division Three the following term.

Indeed, today the Whites would have gone up as Champions as they had the same points and a superior goal difference to Wigan Athletic, but the old 'Goals scored' ruling meant the Latics took top spot. In true Fulhamish style, it was a rule that had previously been endorsed by our former Chairman Jimmy Hill.

Adams will be at the Stadium Store from 3-4pm on Saturday prior to our 5.30pm meeting with Derby County, before being introduced to the fans on the pitch at half-time, alongside the following members of his promotion-winning side:
