Nigel Adkins, one of the few people that can boast they are a physio-turned-manager. The former goalkeeper had a decent playing career, accumulating over 300 appearances for Tranmere, Wigan and Bangor.

He then opted to study physiotherapy while playing, which led to him becoming player-manager of Welsh side Bangor City, leading them to two league titles in three seasons. Adkins joined Scunthorpe as a physio, before taking the manager's job in December 2006.

In that season, Adkins took the Iron to the Championship for the first time in 40 years, but suffered relegation the following season. Desptie this, Scunthorpe bounced straight back up under Adkins' assured stewardship.

Southampton were looking for a manager in 2010 and looked in the direction of the impressive, young, Nigel Adkins. He took over at St. Marys and in two and a half seasons, achieved two consecutive promotions and guided them back to the top flight of English football.

Despite a reasonable start to the Premier League and a fair few points away from the relegation zone, Adkins was dismissed of his duties in January, shocking many around the country. It was only a two-month managerial abscence for Adkins though, as he took the post as Reading manager in March 2013.

The former Saints manager could not prevent the Royals from imminent relegation, but generated a new and attractive style of play, that many Royals fans were in favour of. Adkins maintains that promotion will be the aim for the 2012/13 campaign, after making some great additions in the transfer market.
