Robert was born in Swalwell, Tyne and Wear. Despite only playing once for Newcastle United he would have something of a glittering career that included a full England cap against Ireland in 1913.

He tragically died aged just 33, in the dressing room whilst playing in a friendly for Arsenal. The full-back would make his name at Southampton and Sheffield United.
