Bobby Moss was born on 13th February 1952 in Chigwell and signed schoolboy forms for Leyton Orient in 1968 as a striker, signing professional forms 2 years later. He made his first team debut for the O's in November 1970, scoring within 5 minutes with a terrific header.
In August 1972 he moved to Colchester United but left the U's in January 1973 for what was to be a long career in non league football. He played for Dover, Folkestone Town, Barnet, Wimbledon and Wealdstone before joining City in the summer of 1980. He went on to make 211 appearances for the Club before being released early in 1985, scoring 41 goals during his time at New Writtle Street. He was signed by Colin Harper and made his debut in a 1-1 home draw with Waterlooville. His final appearance came in December 1984 when City beat Alvechurch 3-1.
While at Wealdstone he was one of the six players sent off in the infamous Battle of Plough Lane match in April 1976.
He sadly passed away on 1st August 2010 after a two year long battle with pancreatic cancer.
