Biography

A fine full-back recruited from West Australian club Floreat Park mainly on the recommendation of his father to a Collingwood spotter.

He held Doug Wade to just four goals in his third game at a time when Wade was running riot and shortly after that he held Peter Hudson to two goals which prompted wide-eyed Collingwood fans to predict that they had another Jack Regan.

Clifton played in Collingwood’s losing 1970 Grand Final side, developing into a tall, unobtrusive and very effective player.

He later moved to Fitzroy where his career was finished by a broken leg.
