Career[edit]

Swindon born Clark started his career as a junior at his local club and progressed through the Centre of Excellence at The County Ground.[2] Along with Abdul Said, Clark signed his first professional contract in April 2011,[3] after helping the youth side win their third successive league title during the 2010–11 season.[4] He made his professional debut in a 2–0 League One victory at Tranmere Rovers on 7 May 2011 as a late substitute.[5] In January 2012 Clark was released from his contract at Swindon,[6] and later joined Conference South side Salisbury City after a short time on trial at Forest Green Rovers. He made his debut coming off the bench in Salisbury's 1-1 draw with Dover Athletic, however he was later sent off in the same game after raising his hands to an opponent.

In June 2012, Clark signed a new one year contract at Salisbury. In March 2013 he joined Frome Town on a one month loan deal, playing seven games and netting once for the Robins.[7] He joined Frome permanently following his departure from Salisbury. In January 2014, he joined Southern League side North Leigh.[8]
