Ernie Merrick has made his second signing as Wellington Phoenix coach.

The Phoenix have announced they’ve signed Junior All Whites captain Luke Adams to a one-year contract, with an option for a second season.

Playing at the recent under-20 World Cup put Adams in the shop window.

Adams says Merrick contacted him when he was at the tournament and told him he liked how he was playing.

Luke Adams plays centre back but can cover fullback.
