Clarkey comes home

Noises emanating from the Club seem to confirm that recent triallist, and one time YTS boy turned mainstay of the team, Lee Clark has returned home with a view to playing the odd game in the first team, a few more in the reserves, and getting his coaching badges in order to secure his future in the game when he finally hangs up his boots.

Always prepared to bust a gut for the club, Clark has always remained an ardent supporter, something which once cost him his job in his days representing the craphole down the road. Whilst he's unlikely to make too many starts in the centre midfield role that he called his own during the heady heights of the promotion season, he will bring a greater degree of depth to the squad, and his enthusiasm and love for the club should hopefully inspire some of the youngsters he encounters in the reserves.

From the player's perspective, it looks a decent bit of business, with Lee choosing to spend the latter days of his career playing for the club he loves, rather than slowly dropping down the league in a desperate attempt to delay retirement a la Rob Lee. Whilst from the club's, they get a loyal servant not afraid to slog it out at Kingston Park in the wind and rain of winter who genuinely cares about the direction we're heading in.
