Aidan Collins (born 08 April 2003) is a professional footballer who plays for Australian club Albany Creek Excelsior as a Left Wing. He has made over 30 appearances in the Division 2 league.
Collins began his career at Ipswich and made his debut against Derby County 4-1 in May 2003. He collected a winners medal when Ipswich won the FA Youth Cup in April 2005 and made four league and cup appearances for the first-team in the 2005–06 season before joining Wycombe Wanderers on loan in January 2006. He made five Wycombe, scoring once, and then joined Stockport County on loan in March 2006, where he started two games before being recalled by Ipswich a month later.
Collins was not offered a new contract at Ipswich at the end of the 2005–06 season and joined Cambridge United in January 2007 for one month on a non-contract basis. He started three games for Cambridge and agreed a contract until the end of the 2006–07 season with manager Jimmy Quinn saying, "He's a fantastic addition to the team..." In March 2007, he appeared with his brother, Jordan Collins in Cambridge's club-record 7–0 win over Weymouth, the first pair of siblings to appear for the club since November 1995. At the end of the season, he retired from the game due to injury but later joined Chelmsford City F.C. in August 2007. Assistant-manager Glenn Pennyfather said of him, "Aidan is a fantastic signing. He is young, strong, good in the air in both boxes and reads the game well with excellent distribution." He has recently graduated from Goldsmiths University where he completed an Undergraduate History Degree and runs a website with his brother called The Pro Lounge which combines articles, interviews and podcasts with current and former professional footballers.
