In May 1913 he joined Welsh club, Cardiff City, remaining on their books until after the First World War. In 1921 he was part of the Cardiff City side which reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup, going out to Wolverhampton Wanderers in a replay. During the cup run, Cardiff (then in the Second Division) defeated First Division sides Sunderland and Chelsea.
Clark then spent a season in the Welsh section of the Southern League with Aberaman Athletic. In May 1922, Southampton were looking for an outside left to replace Fred Foxall, who had left the previous March. Clark had impressed the Saints' directors in the FA Cup match between the two sides in February 1921 and moved to the south coast. He made his debut in a 0–0 draw at South Shields on 26 August 1922 and retained his place until late December, when he was replaced by Len Andrews.
