Robert Cram (19 November 1939 - 14 April 2007) was an English professional footballer.

Born in Hetton-le-Hole, County Durham, Cram joined West Bromwich Albion as an amateur in September 1955, at the age of 15. He turned professional in January 1957, but did not make his debut until October 1959, in a 0-0 draw against Bolton Wanderers. He went on to make 163 appearances for The Baggies, including the 1966 and 1967 League Cup finals. He is perhaps most remembered for being the captain of the Colchester United team that beat Leeds United in the 1971 FA Cup, one of the greatest shocks in the competition's history. In 1968, he went on loan with the Vancouver Royals in the North American Soccer League. He returned to the NASL in 1974, this time with the Seattle Sounders.

Cram died in Canada of a heart attack, aged 68, in April 2007.

Bobby Cram was also the uncle of athlete Steve Cram.
