Robert "Bob" Mortimer (16 March 1908 – 26 June 1965) was an English footballer.
Mortimer joined Barrow in 1926, after playing for non-league clubs Connah's Quay & Shotton and Darwen and a non-playing spell with Bolton Wanderers. After making 24 appearances and scoring 10 goals in the league for Barrow, he rejoined Bolton Wanderers in 1928. He again made no league appearances for Wanderers before joining Northampton Town in 1931. He joined Brentford in 1933 after making 62 appearances and scoring 22 goals in the league for Northampton.
