Clark Steven Scarff (born 19 November 1948) is a former Australian cricketer who played four first-class matches for Western Australia. From Perth, Scarff made his first-class debut in a Sheffield Shield match against Victoria in February 1970, the last match of the 1969–70 season.[1] Batting third behind Derek Chadwick and Terry Prindiville, he scored a half-century—67 runs—on debut, featuring in a 131-run partnership with Chadwick for the second wicket.[2] Scarff's three other first-class matches came early in the following Sheffield Shield season. Elevated to the opening position with Chadwick, he failed to score heavily, and did not play at state level again.[3][4] At grade cricket level, Scarff played for Melville, and served as the club's captain-coach for the 1974–75 season.[5] After retiring from playing, he worked for a time as a financial planner, and later moved to Geraldton, where he opened a management training and consulting firm.[6]
