Versatile defender Lee Collins arrived at the club on a free transfer from Northampton Town in May 2015.
Primarily a centre-back, the 26-year-old offers good versatility to our team as he can also operate comfortably at full-back and in midfield – if required to do so.
Born in Telford, Collins, who was previously on the books of Northampton Town, has amassed almost 300 appearances during a career which started at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
He was on Wolves’ books as a youngster, but gained experienced during loan stints with Hereford United, who he helped to promotion from this level in 2007/08, then Port Vale.
After subsequently signing permanently at Vale Park in January 2009, he featured on 163 occasions during a three-and-a-half-year stay with the club.
The defender played at Sky Bet Championship level during a spell with Barnsley, before spending time on loan at Shrewsbury Town.
In February 2013, he agreed terms with Northampton Town and featured in the League Two Play-Off Final later that season. Ultimately, he made 86 appearances in all competitions for the Cobblers.
