Colin James Bailie (born 31 March 1964) is a former professional footballer, born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, who played in the Football League for Swindon Town, Reading and Cambridge United.[2]

Bailie began his career at Swindon Town, where he turned professional in 1982. He made his debut in the Third Division 5–0 defeat at Oxford United on 7 April 1982, playing as a full back.[3] He made 121 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring 4 goals, before a move to Reading in 1985 for a fee of £22,500.[1] While at Elm Park, he played a further 84 league games[2] and played at Wembley as Reading reached the final of the Full Members Cup in 1986. Cambridge United paid £25,000 for his services in 1988,[4] and when John Beck took over as manager in 1990, he converted Bailie to a midfielder, a position he played in as the club went on a run of successive promotions and FA Cup quarter-final appearances. In 1992, Bailie claimed he had lost his appetite for football and was quitting the game; he had a brief spell in non-league football with Eynesbury Rovers before moving to Cumbria to become a police officer.[5][6]
