Bob McAuley (born August 24, 1904 in Wishaw, North Lanarkshire, Scotland) was an early twentieth century Scottish-Canadian football (soccer) fullback. He played professionally in Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland and the United States in addition to earning two caps with the Scottish national team in 1931.



While born in Scotland, McAuley grew up in Montreal. At some point, he began playing for Lachine. He then moved to Montreal Carsteel, showing on Montreal's roster on August 3, 1925 and again on August 1, 1927, both times as Montreal Carsteel lost the Carls-Rite Cup to Toronto.[1] He is also reported as having played for the Grenadier Guards.[2]

In 1925, McAuley moved to the United States and signed with the Providence Clamdiggers of the American Soccer League. He played two and a half seasons in Providence before transferring to the Fall River Marksmen half way through the 1927-1928 season. He remained with the Marksmen until the spring of 1930.[2] That year, Fall River defeated Cleveland Bruell Insurance in the 1930 National Challenge Cup. McAuley scored Fall River’s second goal in the Marksmen’s 2-1 second game victory.

He then returned to Canada where he played for Bluebonnets when they won the Quebec Cup on September 1930.[3] At some point during the 1930-1931 season, McAuley signed with Rangers F.C. in the Scottish Football League. In 1932, he transferred to Chelsea F.C. in the Football League. He spent part of four seasons with Chelsea before moving to Cardiff City for a season. In 1937, he signed as a player-manager with Sligo Rovers of the League of Ireland.[4] He then moved to Workington A.F.C. for the 1938-1939 season before finishing with Raith Rovers in 1939.[2]

National team

McAuley earned two caps with the Scottish national team. The first was a 3-1 victory over Ireland on September 19, 1931 and the second a 3-2 victory over Wales on October 31, 1931.[5]
