Bob Wiltshire was a serviceable ruckman from Foster who gave solid service to two league clubs. He commenced at Geelong in 1954, and played a total of 30 VFL games for the club over three and a half seasons, kicking a dozen goals. He crossed to North Melbourne midway through the 1957 season and when he left the VFL scene behind in 1959 he had added another 36 games and four goals to his respective career tallies.
