Colin Agnew McDonald (born 15 October 1930 at Bury, Lancashire) is a former English football goalkeeper.

He played for Burnley F.C. from 1953 to 1959, making 201 total appearances, until a leg injury forced his retirement. He also played 8 matches for the England national football team, including all four matches in the 1958 FIFA World Cup.

The broken leg that would ultimately end his career came in a game played at Dalymount Park, Dublin on St Patrick's Day, 1959.

The game between the Football League and League of Ireland ended 0-0. The attendance given by the Irish Independent at that time was 35,000.
