James Clark was a superb dribbler who was exciting to watch.
Fans used to say: "That’s Clarky, he would dribble round his own side, the referee and anyone else between him and goal. Dribbling is a joy to watch when Clark is in this mood."
Forward player Clark was introduced into the Liverpool side when he played consecutive games against West Ham United & Portsmouth early in February 1928. Those were his only appearances of the 1927-28 season but he played in 32 consecutive league matches the next season, scoring nine goals which included a brace in the 8-0 thrashing of Burnley at Anfield on Boxing Day 1928.
Although he started the 1929-30 season in the first-team and played in the opening three league fixtures, he lost his place and was only called on once more his last season at the club, 1930-31, although he did sign off with a goal when Liverpool defeated Portsmouth 3-1 on March 28, 1931.
