Collins had made 8 appearances for the Glovers this season having joined from Forest Green Rovers in 2019.

 

He played a part in helping Forest Green to the play-offs in 2018/19 but made the short trip to Somerset to sign a two-year contract.

 

He played much of his career in the EFL, amassing over 350 appearances.

 

Able to operate all across the back four and in defensive midfield, he started out at Wolverhampton Wanderers prior to helping Hereford United to promotion from League Two whilst on loan at Edgar Street.

 

A four-year stay at Port Vale followed where he made over 120 appearances, before spending time in the Championship with Barnsley.

 

Stints at Shrewsbury Town, Northampton Town and Mansfield Town followed prior to joining Forest Green in May 2017.
