Colin Blant (born 7 October 1946 in Rawtenstall) was an English professional footballer who played for six clubs, in a decade long career that spanned the sixties and seventies. Born in Rawtenstall he joined his first League club Burnley from Rossendale United in 1964 but had to wait over two years before making his first team debut. He made just over 50 appearances for the Turf Moor club before joining Portmouth in July 1970. After two years at Fratton Park he moved to Rochdale, a move he later regretted. Further spells at Darlington and Grimsby followed before his league career career ended with Workington in 1977. In retirement he was firstly a newsagent and since 1993 a school caretaker.
