Tranmere Rovers[edit]

Born in Wirral, Merseyside, Collister started his career with Tranmere Rovers when he signed a two-year professional contract with the club on 23 July 2009, where he had graduated from the Rovers' Centre of Excellence.[1]

Collister was primarily used as understudy to on-loan West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Luke Daniels. However, following an injury to Daniels on 12 September 2009, Collister came on as a second-half substitute, and in doing so made his Tranmere Rovers debut, in a League One fixture in which the club lost 3-2 at home to Walsall.[2]

Collister went on to make a total of 14 appearance with Tranmere, but following the end of his two-year contract, manager Les Parry decided to release Collister at the end of the 2010–11 season.[3]


Following a successful trial period, Collister signed for Conference National side Tamworth in August 2011, signing a one-year contract. He joined Barwell on a one-month loan on 24 September along with Lee Weemes and Luke Shearer.[4]

Collister made his debut for Tamworth on 1 January 2012 in a 2–2 draw with Alfreton Town.[5] Later that month he went on loan to Altrincham.[6] He made his debut in a 2-0 defeat away at Gainsbrough trinity, saving a penalty and winning man of the match award.[7]

In late March he joined Fleetwood Town on loan until the end of the season.

AFC Telford United[edit]

On 31 August 2012, Collister joined AFC Telford United on a one-year-deal.[8]

He got released to free up space for Telford to bring in more players on 5 February 2013


He rejoined former club Altrincham until the end of the 2012-2013 season.

Personal life[edit]

Collister attended Hilbre High School in Newton, West Kirby, Wirral until the age of 16.
