Former Carlisle United and Workington Reds goalkeeper Adam Collin has joined a new club.

The 36-year-old Cumbrian has signed for Northern Premier League Premier Division side Basford United.

It follows a spell with National League North outfit Kettering, who he joined after leaving the Blues in 2020.

Collin will combine playing with coaching at the Nottingham-based non-league outfit.

The man from Great Salkeld, near Penrith, has his own goalkeeping academy and is based in the east Midlands.

Basford say Collin will help their main goalkeeping coach Graeme Rodger, will work with the club's academy keepers and will also contribute to their community fotboall club section.

Basford's manager and head of acdemy is ex-Nottingham Forest defender Steve Chettle, who said: "I have known Ads since my involvement alongside Kevin Nolan and the first-team staff at Notts County.

“He has his very successful AC1 Goalkeeper Coaching Academy and has been working with our academy keepers and we have seen fantastic progression from the group.

"It has been great to have him around the group and our goalkeepers' union have gained valuable experience having him around."

Chettle said Collin will "put himself into the fold to play next season" as well as continue his coaching roles.

The Cumbrian, who started in the professional game at Newcastle, went on to star at Workington Reds, earning a move to Carlisle in 2009.

After four years with the Blues - a spell which included a clean sheet in the 2011 Johnstone's Paint Trophy final victory at Wembley - Collin moved on to Rotherham.

He helped the Millers to League One promotion via the play-offs, and later had a loan stint at Aberdeen and a two-year permanent spell at Notts County.

He then rejoined Carlisle for two more seasons, and was player of the year in their 2018/19 campaign.

He made 251 appearances for the Brunton Park club over his two spells.
