One of the first signings made by Eddie Turnbull, Bobby Clark went on to carve out a memorable Aberdeen career. Clark created a British club record in 1971 when he went 13 consecutive games without conceding a goal. Bobby also made a couple of appearances in the outfield, the first when he replaced Jim Forrest at Ibrox for the last 15 minutes of the game, and a week later he started at Pittodrie against St Johnstone.
Clark also kept goal for Scotland a record 17 times while at Aberdeen, his record being broken by Willie Miller in 1982. Won a full set of domestic medals in 1970, 1976 and 1980. Bobby was still at Pittodrie in season 1981-1982 but did not play due to injury and in March 82 he went into hospital to have a disc removed from his back.
Briefly joined Clyde in 1982 before embarking on a coaching career overseas starting with Highlanders of Bulawayo, in Zimbabwe, folowed by Dartmouth College in New England and then New Zealand before settling back in the USA with first Stanford University and in 2001 Notre Dame, Indiana.
