Club career

Everton

Clarke started his career with Everton, signing his first professional contract in January 1999. He made his debut for them in 2001 against Coventry City. cite news

] He made just nine appearances in the Premier League, largely in the unfamiliar position of right back, rather than his preferred centre-half position.

On 6 August, 2002 he went on loan to Blackpool where he made sixteen league appearances, and scoring three goals in a three month loan spell during which his performances played a large part in the Seasiders stringing together a run of clean sheets and rising to the edge of the 2002-03 play-off picture. Despite manager Steve McMahon's best efforts, a permanent deal did not materialise and Clarke returned to Everton on 3 November.

On 20 February, 2003 he went out on loan again, this time to Port Vale, where he made thirteen appearances in another three month loan deal. Then in February 2004 he spent a one month loan spell at Coventry City, playing in five games. His contract with Everton expired at the end of the 2003-04 season, and he turned down the clubs offer of a new contract, and so remained at the club on a month-to-month contract.

Blackpool

On 17 September, 2004 after numerous attempts to sign him, Clarke signed for Blackpool, under then manager Colin Hendry, eight games into the 2004-05 season, initially on a one month loan,but with an agreement to make the move permanent, cite news

] for £150,000. Clarke played a larg part in steering the club away from relegation and, despite the departure of Hendry, continued to be a vital part of the club's line-up, under new manager Simon Grayson. He made a total of 84 appearances for Blckpool and was also the club captain.

outhend United

On the eve of the 2006-07 season in League One, on 2 August, 2006, and despite the offer of a new improved contract, Clarke left Blackpool and signed for Southend United who were newly promoted to the Championship. He signed a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee, citing his desire to play Championship football. cite news

] Ironically, that season, Southend were relegated back to League One and Blackpool were promoted to the Championship. After the 2007-08 season, playing back in League One, Clarke was transfer listed on 5 June, 2008 after failing to agree terms over a contract extension. cite news

] He later stated that he had 'unfinished business' at Blackpool. The value Clarke placed upon himself however proved misplaced, as despite spending all summer on the transfer list, a move did not materialise. Clarke remains a Southend United player, but will doubtless seek to engineer a move when a club presents itself that can meet his wage demands.

International career

Clarke gained England Under-21 honours, and captained England from Under-16 to Under-21 levels. He made his debut for the England Under-21 team in 2002 as a substitute against Slovakia Under-21's. He later captained the Under-21 team.
