Foot In Both Camps - Phil Clarkson

Philip Ian Clarkson began his career with non league Fleetwood Town in 1990. A year later he joined Dario Gradi's Crewe Alexandra, for whom he played 98 league games scoring 27 goals.

In 1996 he moved on to Scunthorpe United, having spent a loan spell there the previous year. During his brief spell with the Iron he netted 18 times in 48 league appearances.

In February 1997 he joined the Seasiders, and became the club's top goalscorer the following season. He stayed on the North West coast for 5 years, winning promotion under Steve McMahon in the 2000-01 Division Three Play-Offs. In 171 games for the Tangerines Phil netted an impressive 35 goals.

In 2004 he finished his career at Lancaster City after brief spells with Bury (on loan), and Halifax Town.
