SFC Debut: Yeovil Town (H) 23rd August 2006
A creative player with an eye for goal, Lallana was provider and executioner in almost equal measure in front of in his final season as a schoolboy. Playing "in the hole" for Saints Under 17 side he found the net on 14 occasions and laid on 11 assists for others - the most for any player in Saints' Academy.
The 2004/5 campaign started slowly for Lallana however as he required surgery to correct an irregular heart-beat - a condition discovered during the medical examination that followed a first call-up for the England Under 17 squad.
He was also a crucial player for Saints Under-18s side, as well as turning in some assured displays for the second string. In April 2006 he also made a goal-scoring debut for England's Under-18s hitting the opener in the Three Lions 2-1 victory over Slovenia in his home town of Bournemouth.
Made his first-team debut in a League Cup win over Yeovil and held his place for the next match at home to Preston. He then broke back into the squad later on in the 2007-08 season scoring his first goal in the penultimate game, a crucial 1-1 draw at West Brom which helped to secure Championship status for another year.
In 2008/09 he enjoyed a long spell in the first team which led to a call up to Stuart Pearce's England Under-21 squad for the play-off games against Wales.
An uninterrupted 2009/10 campaign saw him deliver an impressive contribution to the team where he notched 20 goals from midfield and established himself as a key member of the squad.
After attracting much speculation for his all round attacking displays, Adam showed his commitment to the long term objectives at Saints by penning a new four and a half year contract with the club in January 2011.
Upon promotion to the Championship was heralded as one of the brightest talents in the division, a reputation he lived up to by finishing runner-up to teammate Rickie Lambert for the Player of the Year prize, whilst also being included in the PFA Championship Team of the Year alongside Lambert and Kelvin Davis.
Lallana was handed the armband for Saints' 2012-13 season-opening game at Manchester City having been selected by Nigel Adkins as his new team captain following the Club's return to the Barclays Premier League.
Barely a month later, the attacking midfielder was called into the full England squad for the first time when Three Lions Manager Roy Hodgson drafted him into his party for the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Ukraine at Wembley Stadium.
