Kelvin Leslie Clarke (born 16 July 1957) is an English former Walsall footballer who played as a defender . Clarke was born in Willenhall, the fourth of five brothers (Frank, Allan, Derek and Wayne) who all went on to play League football. He was signed by Walsall as an apprentice, and turned professional in July 1975. He made nine league appearances, without scoring, before an ankle injury forced his retirement in 1978. Not a lot can be added unfortunately because his career was so short, it was said at the time that he was abetter defender than big brother Frank, but no one will ever know.
