The thoughts of everyone at Blues are with the family and friends of Colin during this difficult period.
Formerly an England schoolboy international and amateur with West Bromwich Albion, Erdington-born Colin signed professional forms with Blues in the May of 1957.
The 6’3” goalkeeper recorded 116 first-team appearances across a seven-year spell before leaving St. Andrew’s and joining Aston Villa for a sum of £18,000.
After notching a further century of appearances across the city, Colin joined Lincoln City in 1969 and a year later embarked on a spell with Dutch outfit Go Ahead Eagles.
He completed his playing career in Warwickshire with Atherstone Town, retiring from the game in 1974, and would go on to run a guest house on Osborne Road, Blackpool with his wife Audrey.
Rest in Peace, Colin.
