Andre Nathan Jermaine Everton Clarke (born 11 September 1988 in Hammersmith) is a former English footballer.

Clarke finished joint top scorer for Blackburn's academy in the 2005/06 season, his first full season with the club.

Clarke was loaned to Accrington Stanley on 28 July 2008, until the end of December 2008. On 28 December 2008 he scored a hat-trick at home to Grimsby, whilst at Accrington, bringing his goal tally to 5 in a total of 16 league and cup appearances for Accrington.

On 2 February 2009, Clarke joined Rotherham United on a free transfer until the end of the 2008–09 season.[2] He made his debut on 14 February 2009 against Gillingham, and scored a great goal to put the Millers one-nil up, in a game they would go on to win 2–0.

At the end of the 2008–2009 season, Clarke was told he was not to be offered a new deal at Rotherham United and so became a free agent.

On 3 June 2009, it was confirmed that the striker had agreed terms with Lincoln City manager Peter Jackson, the contract is due to begin on 1 July 2009. The young striker is the Imps' second signing of the summer. However, despite the signing appearing to have potential, Clarke left Lincoln City by mutual consent[3] on 29 January 2010 after scoring just one league goal in 20 appearances for The Imps.
