Following in the footsteps of his prolific goal scoring father Don, Brian Clark signed for Bristol City in the late 1950s and became a firm favourite with the Ashton Gate fans for his prowess in front of goal. Typically 'knocking in' over 20 goals a season, he established an attacking partnership with the legendary John Atyeo, and scored in the final game of 1964/65 to secure the Robins' promotion to Division 2. In 1968, after a brief sojourn at Huddersfield Town, Brian joined Cardiff City and earned the plaudits of the Ninian Park faithful. He struck up a fearsome partnership with a young John Toshack and became a hero with the Bluebirds for his ability to find the net, especially with his superb headed goal against Real Madrid in the quarter-final of the European Cup-Winners Cup. In 1975, after three years with AFC Bournemouth and then Millwall, Brian rejoined Cardiff City before finally moving to Newport County for his final three seasons before retiring from playing the game. Still involved in football as a pundit on Cardiff City's website, Brian's opinions on the game are often sought by television, newspaper and radio.
Written with football journalist and author Richard Shepherd, "Real Robins and Bluebirds" is the fascinating story of a true goal scorer!
