Signing for Exeter City on loan in March 1996, he made his debut against Plymouth Argyle at St James’ Park. He stayed until the end of that season, but didn’t hit the target for the Grecians.

Adrian joined Hereford United in August 1996 and scored 16 goals in 43 league outings. He then signed for Rushden & Diamonds in 1997 where he scored 25 goals in 56 appearances during his two season stay.
