Black & White
And Red All Over
Incredibly it is 40 years since the ever-reliable full-back helped Brian Clough’s all-conquering Nottingham Forest lift the European Cup in Munich – and 50 years since he played in every game in Newcastle United’s triumphant Inter-Cities Fairs Cup campaign.
Newcastle’s most decorated player, Clark made 486 appearances for the Magpies before he joined Forest at the age of 31, confounding those who thought he was finished by winning the League Championship and two League Cups.
After 13 years at Leyton Orient, he went on to succeed former boss Brian Clough at Forest, leading them to promotion and back into Europe. He also managed Manchester City and in 1995, received the ultimate accolade when he was voted LMA Manager of the Year.
