Adam Collin (born 9 December 1984 in Carlisle, Cumbria, England) is a goalkeeper with League One side Carlisle United. Collin was a goalkeeper with Conference North side Workington in the 2008 09 season.

Collin started his career in football with Newcastle United as a youngster. He did not feature in the Newcastle first team, but was named as a substitute on a number of occasions.

Collin had spells on loan at Doncaster Rovers and Oldham Athletic before being released by Newcastle in the summer of 2004. Workington assistant manager Tony Elliott, a former goalkeeper but at the time not attached to the club recommended him to Workington manager Tommy Cassidy. Collin was added to the Reds squad just before the start of the 2004 05 season as cover for Neil Thompson. As Thompson was suspended for the first match of the new season, Collin made his debut in Reds 4 0 home win over Matlock Town. Collin kept clean sheets in each of his first four matches to establish himself as first choice goalkeeper.

He was sent off in 1 0 away defeat at Hyde United in April 2005, for handball outside the penalty area. His suspension was overturned after a video proved he was inside the area, he was the first Workington player to have a suspension quashed in such a manner. Collin saved three penalties in a shoot-out against Farsley Celtic on 17 May 2005, Workington won 6 5 to win promotion to the Conference North.

He made 41 starts During the 2005 06 season and a further 42 during the 2006 07 season.

Collin started to train with Carlisle United twice a week in December 2008, and did enough to secure the offer of a permanent contract in February 2009, joining the club at the end of the 2008 09 season.

Collin made his debut for Carlisle United in the 2009 10 Football League Trophy Northern Section First Round, in the 2 2 draw with Morecambe on 1 September 2009. Carlisle won after a penalty shoot-out. He played again, in the Northern Section Second Round of the same tournament on 6 October, in Carlisle's 4 2 home victory over Macclesfield Town.

Collin then went on to be selected in Carlisle's first team on a regular basis, and saved the penalty that took The Cumbrians to Wembley for the final of the 2010 Football League Trophy.
