Colin Nixon (born 8 September 1978, Belfast, Northern Ireland) is a footballer from Northern Ireland who plays for Glentoran.

Colin has played for Glentoran for all of his professional career. He has mainly played at right back but can also play centre back. He is a Glentoran supporter, and a fan's favourite. 'Nicky' is Glentoran's record appearance holder with over 700 appearances, the 700th coming in November 2010 against Portadown at Shamrock Park.

Colin Nixon is now the current captain for Scott Young's Glentoran after the shock departure of Paul Leeman, who recently joined Crusaders after being released due to financial problems at the Oval.

Nixon works under a manager (Scott Young) who he has played along side, he knows very well and will have been delighted to be appointed as the Captain of Glentoran

Nixon's team mate Sean Ward is the vice-captain of Glentoran, he steps up when Nixon is injured, suspended or unavailable to play.

Colin Nixon and his vice captain both play alongside each other in their defensive roles and are both Glentoran fan favourites and have both rejected moves to Linfield in their careers
