Bob Thomas was an Irish soccer player during the 1920s and 1930s.

Thomas was a left half during this era in the League of Ireland and was part of the All-Conquering Bohemians team of 1927/28 who won every trophy on offer that season - League of Ireland, FAI Cup, Shield and Leinster Senior Cup.[1] After this success, Thomas left the then strictly amateur Bohs to join rivals Shelbourne on professional terms.

He later had a spell as manager of Shelbourne. His nephew is Theo Dunne who won the FAI Cup with Shels in 1960.
