Ringsend, Dublin born inside forward Bob Fullam began his football career with junior clubs St Brendan’s in 1914, North End in 1915 and Olympia in 1916 before joining Irish League club Shelbourne in 1917. In 1921 he moved to Shamrock Rovers for the first time, and played for them until a transfer to Leeds United in May 1923, moving to Elland Road along with teammate John Joe Flood. By then he had completed an unusual Irish Cup double having won the Irish Cup with Shelbourne in 1920 and the Free State Cup with Shamrock Rovers in 1922. He scored a club record 27 League goals in just 22 games, when they won the 1922-23 Irish Championship, for the club’s first League title.

He made his Football League debut for Leeds on the season’s opener at Stoke in August 1923 and scored on his home debut in a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace two days later, but played only 7 times, scoring twice over the season, returning to Shamrock Rovers the following summer.

Fullam twice represented The Irish Free State, both matches coming against Italy, making his debut in Turin in 1926 and scoring the Republic of Ireland’s first ever goal in the match at Lansdowne Road in April 1927, and he also played 6 times for The League of Ireland, thrice against The Irish League and thrice against The Welsh League. In 1926 he joined the trail of players going to play in the nascent North American Soccer Leagues, playing first for Philadelphia Celtic and then for Holley Carburetors of Detroit, before returning to Shamrock Rovers in 1929, to take his championship medal total to four in 1930-31, as well as winning the Irish Cup in 1929, 1930 and 1931. After he was part of the Rovers second treble-winning side of 1932 Fullam retired at the end of that season, having scored 94 Free State League goals.

His association with Shamrock Rovers and the Irish Inter-League team was not over and he coached at both the club and also the Irish Inter-League teams. Having helped Rovers to F.A.I. Cup wins in 1944 and 1945 he retired from football after the Second World War.
