Adams was born in Bolton, Greater Manchester.[2] Adams progressed through the Youth and Centre of Excellence system at Bury and shot to fame with a debut goal against Darlington as he made his first-team debut in a 1–0 home win in October 2005.[4] After the match, Adams debut performance was praised by Chris Casper saying "I'm made up for young Nicky Adams, as he has really worked hard on his game, he's run himself into the ground for the team, and he took the goal well."[5][6] Adams earned more playing time in the first team at Bury.[citation needed] The next season, Adams scored his second goal with an unstoppable shot from 35 yards in a 3–0 win over Grimsby Town on 26 August 2006. After the match, Adams spoke out about the goal, saying "It wasn't bad for a tap in".[7] At the end of the season, Adams signed a new contract.[8] The next season, Adams was soon on a goalscoring form, unlike his two season at Bury, and scored twelve goals this season, including his first brace in a 3–0 win over Barnet on 3 November 2007. After the match, Adams was named man of the match and was praised by Casper.[9] At the end of the season, Adams won the Young player of the year, having received the most votes.[10] Having won the Young player of the year, Adams was offered a new deal to stay at Bury[11] but in June, Adams turned down a deal.
