He had come through the Argyle youth system to earn a full contract at Home Park in August 1961. After making his league debut for Plymouth in a 6-3 defeat at Charlton Athletic in March 1963, Colin never really gained a regular place in the team although he did make a total of 16 league appearances. 

With ex-Argyle manager and assistant manager Ellis Stuttard now in charge at St James' Park, Colin signed for Exeter City in September 1965 for a fee of £1,000 plus a further £250 after 12 first team appearances. Making his debut in a goalless draw at Mansfield Town in September 1965, he went on to make 28 appearances during the Grecians' relegation season but only played once during 1966/67. 

Spending much of his second seaspn on the transfer list, he left City in the summer of 1967 and signed for Weymouth before later playing for Falmouth Town.
