Clark began his career in his native Scotland with Hamilton Academical and also had spells with Buckhaven United and Heart of Midlothian before heading south to join Stoke in 1901. After two seasons, and more than 50 appearances, he moved to Home Park in 1903 and was a key member of Argyle's first professional side.
The first choice left-back for the next three years, Clark also captained the side to great acclaim and was described as giving 'herculean effort'. On leaving Argyle in 1906 he joined Leeds City 'for a substantial fee' and also went on to play for Brentford and Southend United.
