Soccer: Adams signs with Derby County

Former New Zealand Under-17 captain Luke Adams has signed a one-year contract with English Championship side Derby County.

Adams, 18, suffered a blow last year when seriously injuring a knee while on trial at Derby but impressed club officials enough to get another chance.

His immediate goal will be to break into the first team at Derby, who are managed by former England international and Liverpool midfielder Nigel Clough.
