Robert John Bolder (born 2 October 1958) is an English former footballer who played as a goalkeeper.[1]

He started his career with local team Dover F.C. before moving to Sheffield Wednesday at the age of just 19. He played over 200 games whilst at Hillsborough.[1] In 1983, he started a two-year stint as back-up for Bruce Grobbelaar at Liverpool. He won the European Cup in 1984, being placed on the substitutes bench in the final.[2]

He left Liverpool in 1985 for a brief spell with Sunderland before joining Charlton Athletic a year later. He established himself as first choice 'keeper for the Addicks for seven years. He was forced to retire from professional football in 1993 and had spells in non-league football with Dagenham & Redbridge and Margate. He has since returned to Charlton as part of their work in the community scheme. He regularly plays in goal for the Liverpool Masters team.
