The former Blackpool player takes over from Lee Johnson who departed the club after their 2:0 defeat to Bolton on Friday.

A statement from Fleetwood said "We are delighted to confirm the appointment of Charlie Adam as the Club’s First-Team Head Coach."

The 38 year old former Blackpool Captain takes his first steps into management, after earning his badges for Premiere League team Burnley with the Under 21s. 

After agreeing terms with Fleetwood Town on New Year’s Eve, Adam said: “I’m delighted to join a club I know well and one which we feel we can make a real difference with.

“I’m inheriting what I think is a strong squad which is more than capable of getting the results needed to climb the table.

“Fleetwood is a hard-working, honest, and passionate town and the football club must reflect that – the players have to be proud to pull the shirt on and represent what the club and the town stands for.

“It’s now important we see togetherness from the players, staff and crucially the supporters to help turn results around - we can’t wait to get started.”
