Bob Wilson | Speaker Biography

Bob Wilson OBE, a former Scottish goalkeeper, is widely respected in the football world, boasting over 40 years of experience in the professional football industry. Most notably, he spent the majority of his career playing for Arsenal. 

Following his playing career, Bob made a name for himself as a prominent media figure. He worked as a TV presenter and pundit for various football television programs, further solidifying his reputation in the industry. 

Bob's journey in football began in 1963 when he signed with Arsenal as an amateur player. Notably, he became the first-ever amateur player to receive a transfer fee. It took him four years to secure a spot as the first-team goalkeeper, as he initially played as an understudy to Jim Furnell. During his time at Arsenal, Bob achieved numerous victories, including winning the 1969-70 Fairs Cup, as well as the League Cup and FA Cup in the 1970-71 season. Retirement from professional football came at the age of 32 in May 1974.

Post-retirement, Bob transitioned into the media industry, working as a TV presenter for the BBC from 1974 to 1994. During his time with the BBC, he notably hosted Football Focus. Later on, he joined ITV to cover the Champions League alongside Des Lynam.

As a football speaker, Bob offers a wealth of expertise and insights gained from both his playing career and his time in front of the camera. He captivates and interacts with audiences, offering a unique perspective on top-flight football.
