Stepping out for Tranmere against Forest Green at Prenton Park on Tuesday night, Peter Clarke made his 800th senior appearance, nearly 20 years to the day since his Premier League debut.
Clarke has become a member of an exclusive club, joining the likes of fellow defender Tony Ford, who made 1,080 appearances for Grimsby between 1975 and 2001 and Ian Callagan, who made 870 appearances for Liverpool, 76 for Swansea and 15 for Crewe.
It's marks a significant milestone for the enduring 39-year-old.
His appearances for Everton, Blackpool, Port Vale, Coventry, Southend, Huddersfield, Bury, Oldham, Fleetwood and Tranmere, make up 676 league (+19 sub) appearances, 48 FA Cup appearances (+1), 24 League Cup appearances (+2) and 30 other Cup competitions (+1), scoring 66 goals.
He has also made eight England appearances for the Under-21’s.
Clarke joined Everton as a 16 year-old in 1998, going on to join Blackpool on loan where he scored two goals on his debut. Following spells at Port Vale, Coventry, Southend, Huddersfield, Bury, Oldham, Clarke joined Tranmere from Fleetwood last year, becoming a key figure and regular member of the team ever since.
Everyone at the PFA would like to send their congratulations to Peter on this remarkable milestone.
