Adam Craig Chambers[1] (born 20 November 1980) is a professional footballer with Leyton Orient. His previous clubs include West Bromwich Albion, Sheffield Wednesday and Kidderminster Harriers.

Playing career

Chambers' early career mirrored that of his twin brother James Chambers. Both played for Grove Vale F.C., whom they joined in 1996, before signing for West Bromwich Albion as apprentices in July 1997.[2] After progressing through Albion's youth system, both twins turned professional in January 1999.[2] In the 1998–99 season they became the first twins to represent England at any level when they appeared together during the World Youth Tournament in Nigeria.[2] Adam made his first team debut for Albion on 9 September 2000, coming on as a substitute in a 0–0 draw away at Stockport County.[3][4] His brother James, who had made his own debut during the previous season, played the entire match, making it the first time that twins had featured alongside each other for Albion.[2] On 26 December 2002, they became the first twins to play together in the Premier League when they lined up against Arsenal, albeit that they were only on the field together for two minutes.[2][5]

Adam played more than 60 times for Albion, but often struggled to hold down a first team place. During the 2003–04 season, he went on loan to Sheffield Wednesday. In February 2005, Chambers' contract at Albion was terminated by mutual consent,[6] and he briefly joined Kidderminster Harriers.[7]

Injury ruled him out of the 2005-06 season completely and he signed a one year deal with Leyton Orient at the beginning of 2006-07.[8] On 5 February 2007, Chambers signed a two and a half year contract which keeps him at the club until the end of the 2008-09 season.[9] His performance in Orient's 3–1 home win over Port Vale on 20 October 2007 earned him a place in the League One Team of the Week.[10]

Chambers scored his first goal for 15 months in the 2-1 defeat to Southend United on December 28 2009 with a 20 yard volley.
