I always looked at Clarke as very much a contemporary to Ainsworth, along with Neal Ardley.
All feisty ex-pros who went into management around the same time. All got promotion from League Two around the same time, none of them on the biggest of budgets.
Young, inexperienced, raw but good motivators. The only one still standing in League One is Ainsworth.
