Bobby A Thomson

Robert (Bobby) Anthony THOMSON

Classy full-back Bobby joined Wolves from school in 1961 and went on to make 278 League appearances at Molineux in a long career as well as pick up a host of representative honours including eight caps for England.
Bobby moved on a £40,000 transfer to Birmingham in 1969 but within two years was a forgotten man in Blues reserves until he was rescued by Luton manager Harry Haslam in 1972.
Enjoying a new lease of life, Bobby was ever-present during his first two seasons at Kenilworth Road as an overlapping left back, during which time the Hatters won promotion to the top flight and it was only the increasingly loud claims from the talented Steve Buckley that eventually saw him lose his place.
After leaving Luton, Bobby had some success in the USA, was player manager of Stafford Rangers and ran a sports shop in Sedgley until his passing in August 2009.
