William Raymond 'Billy' Clark (born 19 May 1967) is a former professional footballer and a current youth team coach with Bath City.

Clark was born in Christchurch, Hampshire on the south coast of England and began his footballing career as a trainee with A.F.C. Bournemouth. Most of his career was spent with Bristol Rovers, where he spent ten years and made 289 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring fifteen goals.

Recently, Clark rejoined Weston-super-Mare for his second stint with the club. He captained The Seagulls from 2003-2005 before moving to rivals Clevedon Town. His role with Weston was a coach/player which he played defense as well as being used in a coaching capacity.

Clark has since retired from professional football with Weston-super-Mare retaining his rights. He was a youth coach with Bristol Rovers before moving on to perform the same role with Bath City FC in 2009.[1]
