Biography

A fine half-back flanker from Greensborough who came through the Magpie under-19s.

Adamson could defend tightly, but also liked to dash downfield when the chance arose.

In the middle of his career he missed many games because of a succession of injuries.

Although thinly built he could take care of himself and made several visits to the tribunal including one famous one when Carlton’s Syd Jackson was reported for striking him. Jackson said that Adamson had made racist remarks, but years later admitted that the defence had been concocted to beat the charge.

Adamson played in the losing 1970 Grand Final side and was later a support coach at Collingwood, leading the team on its trip to London to face Essendon in an exhibition match at the end of the 1990 season.
