ONE of Cowdenbeath’s most popular and long-serving players has left Central Park after a decade of sterling service.

Defender Kenny Adamson, who made the sixth-highest number of league appearances in the club’s history, said farewell to the Blue Brazil after completing a move to newly crowned East Region Super League champions Kelty Hearts.

The Lumphinnans-based left back moved to Central Park from Livingston in 2007 and helped the club to three promotions during that period – including the Second Division title in 2012 – and a memorable Championship play-off final win over rivals Dunfermline two years later.

Adamson was named the club’s player of the year in 2013 but missed the whole of last season through injury, and has now decided to team-up with Thomas Courts’ team.

Cowden director David Allan said: “Kenny has been a loyal and consistent player for Cowden and has made 241 league appearances for Cowdenbeath FC – only five players can top that.

"He has shared in many great days with us at Cowdenbeath including promotions, a title success, play off victories and playing in the Championship.

“Kenny has been troubled by injury in recent times and thus was missing from the side all last season. He now looks forward to a new challenge just up the road at Kelty.

"He left us after giving his sincere thanks to the chairman and the board for all that has been done for him at the club. 

“We will all miss Kenny and he will always get a warm welcome back here at Cowdenbeath. We wish him well on behalf of everyone at Central Park and all our fans and look forward to seeing him back in the fray up at Kelty.

"Our thanks go to a great club servant.”
