Harry Clarke joins County
Talented young defender Harry Clarke has become the latest addition to the Ross County FC ranks after joining The Staggies on a season-long loan from English Premier League side Arsenal.
Harry, an England youth internationalist, joins County on the back of an impressive loan spell with Oldham Athletic last season and having played a part in Mikel Arteta’s pre-season schedule for The Gunners- which saw them face both Hibernian and Rangers just a few short weeks ago.
Clarke joined the prestigious Arsenal youth academy in 2015, has played at both centre-back and right full-back for a number of years and will strengthen County’s defensive options for the 2021/22 campaign at the Global Energy Stadium.
In his career to date Harry has delivered some highly impressive performances for both Arsenal’s Under 23’s in Premier League 2, as well as with Oldham Althetic in League Two. We are very excited to have Harry joining us and look forward to helping him develop during this cinch Premiership campaign.
Manager Malky Mackay said,
“Harry is a player that I have tracked and watched for some time having seen a lot of youth football during my time with the Scottish FA. He is a player with talent and ability but more so he has a tremendous attitude and one that I think is a perfect fit for our club.”
“I would also like to thank Arsenal FC for giving us this opportunity to further develop Harry, and the way in which the loan deal was conducted over the last few weeks.”
