Description

Nantwich, Cheshire born right half George Clarke began his football career with home town club Nantwich Town and from there joined Second Division club Stoke City in the summer of 1914, but he had yet to make the first team when the onset of First World War caused the suspension of peacetime football in May 1915. Resuming with Stoke in the summer of 1919, he made his Football League debut at Barnsley that September, and over the next five seasons he scored 4 goals in 165 matches, missing only one match in 1920-21 and being ever present in 1921-22 as they were promoted to the First Division on finishing runners up in the Second Division.

Clarke was a regular in their First Division campaign but lost his place in January 1923 and they were relegated at the end of the season, but he returned to Stoke’s half back line in September 1923 before dropping out of the Stoke team  when he broke his leg against Leeds United in an FA Cup tie in January 1924, never to play for them again. He did however briefly re-surface three years later at near neighbours Crewe Alexandra, for whom he made 2 appearances in January 1927 before his retirement.
