Colin Cramb (born June 23, 1974 in Lanark) is a Scottish professional footballer, currently without a club.


Cramb began his career as a junior with Hamilton Academical, playing 53 times before a transfer to Southampton in June 1993 for a fee of £60,000. He struggled to settle at The Dell, making just one appearance, as a substitute, before joining Falkirk in August 1994 for a fee of £5,000.

He moved to Heart of Midlothian in March 1995, Hearts paying £50,000 for Cramb in addition to Maurice Johnston going in the opposite direction. He played just six times for Hearts before a £25,000 move to Doncaster Rovers where he became a regular goalscorer, scoring 25 times in just 62 games to earn a £125,000 move to Bristol City in August 1997. He was a regular in his first season at Ashton Gate when he helped the club gain promotion to the first division (now known as the Championship), but was out of favour in the 1998-99 season due to the form of Ade Akinbiyi and Søren Andersen. In February 1999, Cramb spent a month on loan with Walsall and moved to Crewe Alexandra in August 1999 for a fee of £200,000.

Cramb had loan spells with Notts County (September 2000) and Bury (February-May 2001) before leaving Crewe on a free transfer to join Dutch side Fortuna Sittard in June 2001. He was injured playing in Holland and returned to Scotland to recover and regain his fitness, training with Hamilton Academical and featuring in reserve games as a trialist for Livingston and St. Johnstone.

In January 2003, Cramb returned to England, joining Bury until the end of the season. In July 2003 Cramb signed for Shrewsbury Town, scoring 12 times in 35 games before joining Grimsby Town in September 2004. He struggled to establish himself at Blundell Park and returned to his first club, Hamilton Academical in January 2005.

In June 2005 he joined Stenhousemuir, scoring 16 times in just 27 league games as Stenhousemuir battled, unsuccessfully, to gain promotion from the Scottish Third Division. He left Stenhousemuir in July 2006 to join Stirling Albion, his 15th professional football club. Cramb was released at the end of the 2007-08 season, after which he signed for East Stirlingshire.[1]

Cramb left East Stirlingshire by mutual consent after getting sent off for dissent in a league match on 4 April 2009.[2]

Cramb has been married and then divorced having a son named Lee (13)and a daughter
