Centre forward John Clarke played for Glasgow Rangers in 1894 before moving to England and joining Lancashire League Fairfield in 1894, making his senior debut in an FA Cup qualifying round tie at Crewe Alexandra in November that year scoring a hat-trick in a 6-3 victory, however they went on to lose 11-1 at Sunderland in the next round (first round proper). He won the Lancashire League Championship that season and joined First Division Bury in April 1896, making his Football League debut that September at Sunderland.
