Who is Adrian Coote?

Adrian Coote is a former professional footballer.

Coote, a striker, came through the youth system at Norwich City, for whom he scored 3 goals in 61 appearances. While at Carrow Road, he won 6 full international caps with Northern Ireland. His 5% goals to games ratio earnt him the nickname, 'Adrian Shoot,' as the fans always wanted to see him score and regularly chanted, 'Shoooot,' whenever he had the ball. He was given this name by a group of Norwich City supporters known as, 'The Barclay Boys.' Coote got the 'Haircut of the Month' award in the popular football Magazine Shoot in February 1997, his wet look gelled curtains were the must have haircut of every young boy.

Norwich sold Coote to Colchester United for £50,000, but was unable to establish himself in the side, and, after a loan spell at Bristol Rovers where he scored once against Leyton Orient, he was released by Colchester shortly after the start of the 2003-04 season.

Since leaving Layer Road, Coote has played for a series of non-league clubs in Norfolk including Wroxham.
