Biographical Text

Edwin was a native of Clyst St Mary and played with City as an amateur. He is pictured in the 1912/13 team squad and turned out for the reserves in their Plymouth and District League matches. The Football Express reports a Clark goal in the 3-2 defeat at Torpoint saying he 'earned hearty handshakes by netting grandly. His shot was easily the best of the afternoon'. Edwin served in World War 1 and was killed in an accident on his ship at Grimsby. He is buried in Clyst St Mary churchyard and remembered on the war memorial at St James Park and in Whipton Church.
