Best & Fairest 1933
Swans Team of the Century
Harry Clarke, a brilliant winger from Middle Park, played his junior football with South Melbourne Districts where his pace, evasive skills and ability to win the ball caught the attention of the South Melbourne scouts. Clarke made his debut in 1926, against Richmond at the Lake Oval. Rated as one of the Club’s finest players, he was named on the wing in the 1933 Grand Final against Richmond. Clarke was one of South’s best players in the 42-point victory, and won the Best and Fairest award in that Premiership year. Clarke continued to give the Swans great service over the next two years, playing in both the losing 1934 and 1935 Grand Finals, and representing Victoria in 11 State games. The 1935 Grand Final was Clarke’s last game. In 2003, Harry was named in the Swans Team of the Century.
