Colin Doyle: From Douglas Hall To Birmingham City

Colin Anthony Doyle (born August 12, 1985 in Cork, Ireland) is an Irish footballer, who claimed Birmingham City's number 1 goalkeeper jersey. Having signed a professional contract with Birmingham as an 18 year old, he had loan spells at Chester City and Nottingham Forest, during neither of which he saw much first-team action.


He played his schoolboy football in Ireland with Douglas Hall in Cork from Under 8 up to Under 15, when he joined Birmingham City. He progressed through the Birmingham ranks and made his competitive debut against Shrewsbury in the 2006/07 Carling Cup, keeping a clean sheet in the 1-0 win. He followed up this appearance with his League debut against Cardiff City, where the Blues lost 2-0.

In August 2006, he played against Greece away for Ireland Under 21s and kept a clean sheet in a 2-0 victory. Doyle done very well in the English Championship and enjoyed a really good performance against Wolves some years ago, in which he made a series of good saves and also saved a penalty in the last stages of the game from Wolves midfielder Michael McIndoe. That game ended with Birmingham City winning 3-2 and returning to the top of the Championship.
