Clifford Gene "Cliff" Balsom (born 25 March 1946) is an English former professional footballer who played in the Football League for Torquay United.[1] He was born in Torquay, Devon.[2]

A full back, he began his career as an apprentice with Torquay United,[1] making his debut at the age of 17 on 25 January 1964 against York City at Bootham Crescent. He turned professional in March 1964,[citation needed] and in June the same year was transferred to Swindon Town[3] after only four league games for the Gulls. He failed, however, to make the first team at Swindon, returned to Torquay United,[4] but not to their first team, and left league football.[1]
