League Two side Carlisle United have resigned former Rotherham and Notts County goalkeeper Adam Collin on a one-year deal, confirmed by the club website.

The goalkeeper was released by Notts County at the end of last season and has become John Sheridan’s fifth summer signing for Carlisle United.

Collins was previously with Carlisle from 2009 to 2013 and made 159 appearances in four seasons.

He moved to spend three years with Rotherham in May 2013 and spent the last two seasons with Notts County, with more valuable experience gained in play-off campaigns, where he made a total of 81 appearances.

Goalkeeper coach Dan Watson said: “I’m very happy that this is done. This makes it a very strong goalkeeping department with two extremely good keepers to work with.

“Adam has been in with us for a couple of sessions this week and I can see a bond building already. He comes to us with a huge amount of experience and he’s grown and developed a lot since he was last here.

“He knows the game, he knows the club and he’s here to do well. He’s also here to help this club be successful and he knows he’s going to have to earn the right to wear the shirt, which is exactly the same as it is for Joe [Fryer].

“I’m really looking forward to getting to know him better and to seeing how far we can all help to push each other on.”

Carlisle United have also signed Middlesbrough goalkeeper Joe Fryer on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old spent last season with League Two rivals Stevenage, making 32 appearances in all competitions.
