Clifford Clarkson from Barrow was a wartime guest player for Exeter City during 1944/45 when, as the situation eased, a number of games were organised to constitute the first football played by the club since 1939.
He is recorded as having played against Yeovil in March 1945 when he scored both of City's goals in a 2-2 draw.
He played 22 times for Barrow in the 1945/46 interim competitions scoring on seven occasions. Also playing football for Netherfield and Lancaster City, he was a well-known club cricketer who appeared for Barrow in league cricket.
Clifford died in Barrow-in-Furness in 1986.
