Colin James Alcide (born 14 April 1972 in Huddersfield, England) is an English former footballer.

Alcide began his career in local football before joining Emley. In the summer of 1992, following just one season with Emley, he followed his manager Gerry Quinn across the pennines to Altrincham. He then returned to Emley before signing for Lincoln City and beginning his Football League career. In 1998 he formed a strike partnership with Leo Fortune-West. Alcide moved to Hull City in 1999. In 2001 he joined Cambridge United.[1] At Cambridge he scored once in the League Cup against West Bromwich Albion.[2]

In the summer of 2004, Alcide reappeared in the colours of TNS for whom he appeared against Osters IF in the UEFA Cup but did not remain for the Welsh Premier League season, instead linking up with his former Emley and Altrincham manager Gerry Quinn at Ashton United in Conference North. His spell at Ashton was interrupted by illness and injury, prompting his retirement in October 2004. His greatest moment for York City came in a match at home when he played centre back, taking a meaningless free kick in his own half, he went to punt the ball up and sliced it into the Popular Stand.
