I remember Robert at St Mary's and St Pats Dumbarton. Always a really nice guy and a class player. I followed his career, he did go to Barnsley but I particularly remember him setting up a goal for Alan Bailey - Pompey I think against Fulham which was shown on telly a lot during a promotion season. RIP Rab
Like John Weldon above I remember Robert at st marys and st pats Dumbarton. Always a really nice guy and a class player. I followed his career , he did go to Barnsley but I particularly remember him setting up a goal for Alan Bailey Pompey I think against Fulham which was shown on telly a lot during a promotion season. Just read of Roberts death in Backpass magazine. RIP Rab
The footballer Bobby Doyle passed away 26th February 2019. The young lad has obviously made a mistake. Saw him play many times for Barnsley during the dark days of the 70's. Always gave everything for the club, he was the kind of player the Reds fans loved.

I spent six years in Robert 's company in St Patrick's and have to say that he was the best player I played with although he was in the team above me He was a product of Jack Gilroy and the 3 s in the gym. He was a clever, funny guy. RIP Robert.

He played for Barnsley as I started to watch them on a regular basis. He had a tremendous shot. He was our penalty taker and didn't mess about trying to place it. The goalkeeper was well advised to get out of the way. I remember him scoring one on the last home game of 74/75 against Southport and he looked like he needed to be elsewhere playing for a better team. Saw him play midfield for a very good Hull City team beat Barnsley 4-1 at Oakwell. Looked a class player. RIP Bobby Doyle.

Bobby Doyle is my grandfather and he sadly passed away on the 24th of September this year (2012). I really miss him and he was the greatest person I knew. R.I.P xxxx
I knew Bob Doyle socially in the early 70's he was really polite level headed footballer,not like a lot of the players kicking a ball around today.
I lost touch when he moved on from Barnsley but was shocked when I read the comment listed by his grandson.
Is this the same Bob Doyle who played for Barnsley FC until 1976?
I went to St.Mary's Primary School in Duntocher with Robert Doyle
