Synonymous with an 18-year spell at Crusaders, the former Seaview skipper – who has six Northern Ireland international caps to his name – was most recently with Glenavon before his exit just prior to the closure of the Summer 2021 Transfer Window.
A vastly experienced central defender, Colin crossed the North Belfast divide to put pen to paper with Cliftonville in September 2021, and played an increasingly prominent role as his first season at Solitude wore on; infamously finding the net in a Derby game back on his old stomping ground.
