Bobby WOODRUFF

One of the many players who came up through the youth ranks under the guidance of Bert Head, Woodruff was a goalscoring wing-half, who scored twenty goals in his 180 league appearances for the club during the early sixties.

Woodruff was a long-throw specialist - and asset which brought the Town 12 goals in their first ever promotion season in 1962/1963.

He was the first of "Bert's Babes" to leave the club, signing for First Division Wolves in March 1964. His move triggered a mass exodus, and Swindon were relegated back to Division Three in 1965.
