Former Norwich City midfielder Neil Adams has taken on a full-time coaching role in the club's youth set-up.

The 45-year-old, who played 206 times for the Canaries, will step up from his part-time job to coach the under-16s and assist under-18s boss Ricky Martin.

Adams will quit his roles as BBC Radio Norfolk's matchday summariser and a Norwich Evening News columnist.

"It's really extending what I've been doing the last few seasons," he told BBC Radio Norfolk.

"I don't think you can look much further than the end of last season in the way of highs for Norwich City.

"To get back into the Premier League was massive and we had some incredible games."

During his 10 years commentating on the Canaries, Adams has seen three promotions, two relegations and one play-off final defeat.

He has shared that commitment with a part-time role on the Norwich academy coaching staff.

"Neil has been involved with the academy for 10 years and has overseen nearly every age group from under-12s upwards," said Martin.

"This has given him a vast amount of experience and an opportunity to work with elite players."
