Macclesfield though become the eighth team Adam has played for now, an amount of moves that is certainly getting him a reputation as a baggage-ridden journeyman at such a young age. The fee for his move to Moss Rose is rumoured to actually be £17,500 with the supposedly cash-strapped Silkmen apparently picking up the tab for the agent's fee of £7,500, Murray seemingly keen to get away from the Devon coast.
The 25-year old was apparently then Gulls' boss Ian Atkins' number one target last summer, and he finally ended his stay with Carlisle, after handing in a pre-season transfer request, which came as something of a shock, by joining the Plainmoor club on August transfer deadline day morning. Murray had a year left to run on his United contract and moved for £10,000 although the length of contract he signed with the Devonians was unknown.
The Birmingham-born midfield man joined the Cumbrians on the 24th of March 2005 for a nominal fee from Mansfield Town and made 44 starts for the Cumbrians, plus eight as a substitute, scoring just four goals in the process. It was no secret that Murray wasn't played in his best position under ex-Carlisle manager Paul Simpson, Adam finding himself stuck out on the right-hand side of midfield, when he would have much preferred to play inside.
