Michael Alan Adams was a forward who made just one substitute appearance for Rovers in the final game of the 1982–83 season, coming on for Paul Randall 73 minutes into the encounter with Cardiff City.

The circumstances surrounding the game conspired to ensure that Adams's appearance would not be remembered, as Cardiff's point in this 1–1 draw enabled them to win promotion, Rovers' manager Bobby Gould had resigned the day before, former England international and World Cup-winner Alan Ball was making his final appearance in the professional game, and Aidan McCaffery required a life-saving intervention during the match from physio Roy Dolling after swallowing his tongue. The amount of attention gathered by these events left Mike's appearance, in Ron Gingell's only game as The Pirates' caretaker manager, with barely a mention.

Mike had a loan spell with Bath City at the end of the 1983–84 season, and he signed a permanent deal with the Romans at the end of that campaign. He stayed with the Twerton Park club for four years, before moving to Weston-super-Mare in 1988, and from there on to Keynsham Town in 1993.
