Biographical Text

Goalkeeper Clifford Kirk, arriving from Liverpool and moving on to Barnsley, had a single season with Exeter City in the mid-1930s as understudy to Arthur Chesters. 

Kirk had previously been on the books at Liverpool, although he had never played for their league side. He was described as being a capable custodian with a safe pair of hands.

Signed in the summer of 1935 as goalkeeping understudy to Arthur Chesters, Kirk was to play just three league matches for Exeter City, the first of which was away at Northampton Town in January 1936. Unable to win a regular place in the Grecians’ team, Kirk moved on to sign for Barnsley in the summer of 1936, but once again, never played any first team football for them.

Clifford died in Broadstairs, Kent in December 1982.

Just wanted to say it's so lovely to see my Grandfather on here. I have his Exeter ground pass, he kept everything from his football career as he was always so proud of his football days!
