Robert 'Bobby' Cumming was a combative defender/midfielder who spent the majority of his career at Grimsby Town, where he is remembered fondly for the ferocity of his tackling,[1] before joining Lincoln City in 1987. He was an integral part of Lincoln's Conference winning team and was rewarded by being voted the player of the season. He went on to enjoy another two seasons with the Imps in the Football League before emigrating to America in 1990. Such is his fondness at Sincil Bank that he was recently voted 23rd in the top 100 Lincoln City league legends.[2]

He emigrated to America in 1990, settling in Kendallville, Indiana and working as a finishing supervisor at MTA in Auburn, Indiana.[3]
