Biographical Text

Colin Alcide, best known for his time at Lincoln City, made a solitary appearance for Exeter City in 2002 before moving into non-league football. 

Colin began his career at non-league Emley in 1992 later moving to Altrincham and back to Emley. He then signed for Lincoln City in a £15,000 deal. After 27 goals in 121 league games he moved to Hull City in March 1999 and on to York City in November 1999. A further move to Cambridge followed in May 2001 but, after only eight league games, Colin was released and joined Gainsborough Trinity.

It was at this stage, some three-and-a-half years after the goals had dried-up on leaving Sincil Bank, that Colin arrived at Exeter City on a non-contract basis in November 2002. His one game for the Grecians, with City already struggling near the foot of the table, was against Hartlepool United on 9 November 2002. It also proved to be Colin’s final game in the Football League. 

Colin later played in Europe for Welsh club TNS and also appeared for Ashton United before injury prompted his retirement in October 2004 before later having a hip replacement in November 2018.
