Player Profile

Collins was a centre-half or left-half who arrived at Fosse from Leicester Old Boys in 1901. He was one of the club's better performers in a Leicester side that was struggling at the time, and was therefore one of the club's more valuable assets.

After four years' service to Fosse he chose to move on for a spell with Fulham after making 82 Football League starts for Fosse. He was a popular player at Craven Cottage, staying for nine years and helping them to successive Southern League titles.

Collins did return to Fosse in the first two seasons of World War I football as an assistant before settling locally in Countesthorpe after his football career. Other ties to Leicester included his father, Tom, and brother, Harry, being directors at the club.
