OBITUARY | Bobby Todd - 1949 - 2022

21 March 2022

Everyone at Rotherham United has been deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our former player Bobby Todd, aged 72.

Bobby represented the Millers from March 1968 having signed on a free transfer from Liverpool and made his league debut just a few months later, appearing as a substitute in a 4-1 win over Tranmere Rovers.

Hailing from Goole, Bobby began his career as an apprentice with Scunthorpe United before making the move to Merseyside in July 1967.

The Millers became his third club after that time, but his stay in South Yorkshire wasn’t a lengthy one as he made just six appearances in total – two starts and four as a substitute – with one start at outside left and the other at inside left.

He would later go on to play for Mansfield Town and Workington where he would make his final appearances in the Football League.

Bobby walked out at the national stadium in 1975 as part of the Scarborough side that reached the FA Trophy final, lining up alongside ex-Millers Ken Houghton and John Woodall.

Everyone at Rotherham United would like to extend their heartfelt condolences to Bobby’s friends and family at this incredibly difficult time.

Once a Miller, Always a Miller.
