  • England Under 23 international whilst at Charlton and, I believe, played for my Scottish side Berwick Rangers as well as Charlton Athletic.

    RIP Bobby

  • Wonderful partnership between Bobby Ayer, Ronnie White and I think Stuart Leary, seems like yesterday. I am sure he gained more than one England caps at under 21 level.
  • RIP

    That’s an impressive goal scoring record!
  • Recommended by our West Country scout who also sent Don Townsend and John Ryan to us. Bobby and John were in the RAF at Lyneham
    RIP Bobby

    Yes I saw that mate.....still not sure if I saw him play.
    He may have left us at just about the time I started going, in early ‘58.

    Born Berwick on Tweed 26/03/1932

    Newcastle Utd (amateur - no games)
    Bath City (no games)
    Chippenham Town
    CHARLTON ATH. 109 (48)
    Reading 57 (24)
    Weymouth

    Made his debut in a 2-1 victory over Bolton at The Valley on first January 1953. Scored two days later as Charlton beat Wolves 2-1 at Molyneux.

    At 5'6" would have failed the Charlton height test. Was only 10st and wore size 5½ boots.

    Very good player for us in a very good team, oh for those days back again.

    It is indeed something his family should take pride in at this sad time. At nearly 1 in 2 he would be star in today's game.

    RIP Bobby.
