MORECAMBE boss Derek Adams celebrates one year in charge of the Shrimps this weekend.
Adams joined the Shrimps officially on November 7th last year and watched on as the Shrimps were knocked out of the FA Cup at Blackpool and were sat at the bottom of League 2 with just three wins from 17 games after a poor start to the season.
Since then there has been a major change in fortunes - and personnel - as the Shrimps have made a promising start to the news season with Adams saying fans should be “proud’’ of the club’s achievements so far.
Adams said: "I joined in November and we were bottom of the league when I joined.
"It's always challenging when you're down the bottom because there are a lot of difficult games.
"The full focus was getting clear of the relegation zone because it's so important to stay in the football league and we did that. The players we brought in in January helped us along with the lads already there. We changed the style of play to enable us to get the points we needed to stay in the division and we managed to build again in the summer with some more good signings.
"The year has gone quickly I must just admit but we have turned things around.
“There has been a large turnaround in players and now we need to keep moving forward, starting on Sunday where we will be doing all we can to get into the second round of the FA Cup.''
