Elijah (Eli) Adams (1888–1965) was an English footballer.

Playing career

Adams played for Newchapel United, Biddulph Mission, Goldenhill Warriors, Tunstall Park, Kidsgrove Wellington and Audley before joining Stoke City and later Port Vale in June 1912. He made his debut in a 1-0 home win over Manchester United Reserves in a Central League match on 7 September 1912. He scored the winning goal of the Birmingham Senior Cup replayed final against Wolverhampton Wanderers Reserves on 21 April 1913 and finished the 1912–13 season as the club's top scorer, with 20 goals in all competitions. However he picked up an illness in the late summer and failed to recover by the early autumn of 1913. He lost form after finally recovering and so was released, most likely in the 1913 autumn. He moved on to Audley Town.[1]
