Clarke Signs Pre-Contract

Clyde are delighted to announce that Cowdenbeath’s Pat Clarke has today signed a pre-contract deal with The Bully Wee. The 5’11 striker has been tracked by Colin Hendry for some time and he agreed a summer switch to Broadwood this afternoon.

Edinburgh-born Clarke, 22, started his career as a youth at Dunfermline at the same time as Craig McKeown. He made just two appearances for the then SPL club and – after a loan spell at Berwick – then signed for Raith Rovers, scoring two in his debut against Clyde in February 2005.

After a mixed time at Stark’s Park, Clarke signed for Second Division Cowdenbeath in the summer of 2006 and went on to post a fine tally of 17 goals in his first season at The Blue Brazil.

His potential has continued to be shown this season, with 7 goals in 13 starts to his name.

Pat is delighted to give his long-term commitment to Clyde and the club and player alike are now looking forward to the day when he can play competitively for The Bully Wee.

Clyde boss Colin Hendry spoke immediately to the Official Website: “I’m delighted to get a hold of the lad. A lot of clubs were after him but he wanted to come to us.

“Pat will offer a different dimension to our game and is an extremely hard worker. It is great news for the club that, starting from the summer, he will begin a two year deal.”
