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. 

Clifford had previously been on the books at Liverpool although he had never played a league game. 

Signed in the summer of 1935 as understudy to Arthur Chesters, he was to play just three league matches for Exeter City starting with the game at Northampton Town in January 1936. Unable to win a regular place in the Grecians’ team, and with Jack Beby also at the club, Clifford signed for Barnsley in the summer of 1936 where he failed to make the first-team. 

Later playing in South Wales for Barry, 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!
