Arthur William Childs-Clarke (13 May 1905 – 19 February 1980) was an English first-class cricketer who played for Middlesex and Northamptonshire.


Born in Exeter, he played 10 times for Middlesex between 1923 and 1934, and captained the second XI from then until the war. In 1947 he took over the captaincy of Northamptonshire for two seasons in which the county finished bottom both years, managing to win only five out of 56 matches. Childs-Clarke averaged 18.31 in 1947 and 13.16 the following year.[1]
