Andrew "Andy" Collett (born 28 October 1973) is a retired English professional goalkeeper. He is currently the goalkeeping coach at Oldham Athletic, following manager Dave Penney from Darlington.

Collett, born in Middlesbrough, was the son of a demolition worker. He began his career at his home-town club, Middlesbrough F.C., for whom he made only two first-team appearances. He then moved south to Bristol Rovers, where he remained for five years before moving on to Darlington. He stayed at Darlington for five years, before his career was cut short because of a shoulder injury.

In 2000, Collett played a vital role in helping Darlington reach the Division Three play-off final, where they lost to Peterborough United. He was rewarded for a consistent season and some extravagant saves when he received the Division Three Goalkeeper of the Year award for the 1999 2000 season.

Collett was appointed Darlington's goalkeeping coach after he retired as a player in 2004.

On the 26 May 2009, he was appointed goalkeeper coach of Oldham Athletic. He rejoined Dave Penney and Martin Gray, who were also amongst the coaching staff of Darlington.
