Troy Alexander Douglin (born 2 May 1982 in Coventry) is an English former professional footballer. He is a central defender and currently plays for Tipton Town. He represented Wolverhampton Schools FA in the 1996-97 season while at school in Wednesfield.Douglin began his career as an apprentice with Torquay United, turning professional in July 2000. He made his first team debut against Gillingham in the Worthington Cup in August 2000 and after impressing in reserve games was approached by Celtic manager Martin O'Neill about going to Parkhead on trial. He joined Celtic on loan on the 5th of October 2000, mainly playing for their under-21 side. In March 2001, Celtic offered Torquay a deal where they would only pay for Douglin if he made the grade at Parkhead, with no initial payment. Unsurprisingly this offer was turned down and Douglin returned to Plainmoor later that month. He began the following season on a weekly contract at Plainmoor, as he weighed up his options, but signed a new two-year deal on 5 September.

He was released in February 2003 and had a trial with Hereford United. He subsequently joined Worcester City and in February 2004 joined Bromsgrove Rovers. He played nine times for Rovers, but, despite signing a new deal, left at the start of the following season.

In the 2005-06 season, Douglin was with Rushall Olympic. He spent the 2006 close season coaching in the United States at the Charlton Athletic US Soccer Academy, returning to Rushall in September 2006. He joined Tipton Town later in 2006.
