Description

Wishaw, Lanarkshire born full back Bob McAuley started his football career with Bellshill Athletic in 1919 before leaving Scotland to play in Canada and the United States in 1920. Among other clubs he featured for Montreal Carsteel in 1920, Montreal Grenadier Guards in 1922, Providence Clamdiggers in 1925 and Fall River Marksmen in 1927. In the spring of 1930 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 returned to Scotland to join Glasgow Rangers in the summer of 1930. He made his Rangers debut in September 1930 when he played in a 4-1 Scottish League victory over Leith Athletic at Ibrox. His next opportunities came the following April when within 3 days he appeared in a drawn match at Partick Thistle and a 4-0 victory at East Fife. These would prove his only 3 appearances for Rangers.  In September 1931 he won his first Scottish international cap when he played in a 3-1 victory over Ireland at Ibrox. In October 1931 he first represented The Scottish League in a 3-2 defeat to The Irish League in Belfast, and then won his second international cap in a 3-2 victory over Wales at Wrexham.

In the 1932 close season he joined First Division Chelsea, making his Football League debut at Huddersfield Town that September, becoming a regular in 1934-35 when he missed just 4 games. In 1936 he joined Cardiff City after a single goal in 74 appearances for The Pensioners, but he made only 4 appearances in the early months of 1937 before joining Irish League Sligo Rovers as player manager, staying for the 1937-38 season. He returned to England to play for Workington in 1938 before finishing his career in Scotland with Raith Rovers in 1939.
