Colin Morris (born 22 August 1953 in Blyth, Northumberland) is an English former footballer. He played as an attacking midfielder.Colin started his career with Burnley as an apprentice. He made his debut for Burnley in their sensational home FA Cup defeat to non-league Wimbledon in January 1975. After six years at Turf Moor he joined Southend United. Another move took him to Blackpool, before a £100,000 transfer saw him join Sheffield United in February 1982.

Morris was a diminutive and talented right winger who entertained Sheffield United fans throughout the 1980s, usually supplying ammunition for Keith Edwards to score.

His son, Lee, followed him into the Blades ranks in the 1990s.
