Norwich Career: 2001-2006 (Academy)
Current Club: Retired
Date of Birth: 04/11/1986 (Great Yarmouth) 
Nationality: English


Striker Josh Clarke was in the Norwich City Under 15 squad that won the Northern Ireland Milk Cup in August 2001. At the time Josh attended Lynn Grove High School in Gorleston and was described as having pace and an eye for goals. Although primarily a striker, he has also been used as a winger. Josh had joined the Canaries at the age of nine.

He was offered a place as a first year scholar at Norwich's academy in December 2002. He has made a number of appearances for the Under 19s during 2002/03 scoring four goals. In July 2003, he became a full time scholar with Norwich's academy. "He scores goals, has tremendous pace and is getting stronger all the time" said Academy Director Sammy Morgan in August 2003

A cruciate knee injury sustained in the early part of the 2003/04 season saw Josh miss the remainder of that campaign. He eventually played again after 30 months in December 2005 coming on as substitute on 6th December in the 2-0 defeat to Millwall. That was the only appearance that Josh made for the Academy and at the end of the 2005/6 season, he decided to end his Norwich City career to avoid further complications with his knee injury. He instead will take up a place at Leeds University in September 2006 to study English Literature. By 2009, he was hoping to move into sports journalism.
