Proper football name that. So it’s a yes from me.
The 29-year old playmaker, number 10 they are called these days, became the Addicks’ first summer signing yesterday. An undisclosed fee but said to be six figures, Clarke spent 3 years at Bradford City and played 40 times last season in the Bantams run to the play-off final.
Born in Cork, Clarke has played for Ipswich, Blackpool and Crawley Town as well as an assorted mix of loans. Clarke helped Blackpool reach the Premier League in 2010 but then unfortunately missed the whole campaign due to injuries.
On the face of it a solid signing, and a player who knows about promotion campaigns and hopefully he is the beginning of a completed summer transfer window jigsaw puzzle and not one with half the pieces missing.
Not an out an out goalscorer but a good enabler, and link up man. Welcome Billy.
