Robert William "Bobby" Woodruff (born 9 November 1940 in Highworth, Wiltshire) is a former English professional footballer.

Woodruff began his career at his hometown club Swindon Town where he broke into the first team at 18. He was a regular in the side before joining Wolves in 1964 for forty thousand pounds. During this time he gained a reputation as a long-throw specialist but eventually moved on two years later to Crystal Palace. He helped take Palace to division one but only played a handful of matches in the top flight before being allowed to leave and join Cardiff City for twenty five thousand pounds. He was signed as a replacement for Barrie Jones. He scored six goals in six games when asked to play as a centre forward. He was released in 1974 and joined neighbours Newport County. He signed for Cork City F.C. for their inaugural season in the League of Ireland.

After retiring he took positions as both youth coach and reserve team coach at Cardiff, also later working as a social worker.
