Clive Jackman Pen Portrait: by Malcolm Green

Born, Aldershot 1936, signed as an amateur for AFC at 15 whilst still at Farnborough Grammar School and played in the "A" team with occasional games for the Combination side. In 52-53 season twice turned out for the first team but a double fracture of the jaw sustained against Leicester reserves on Christmas eve that year prevented further opportunities for the top goalkeeping place. Signed professional for Aldershot in May 1953.

During National Service he was regularly chosen to represent the Army, after which he returned to Aldershot to resume a professional career. After Freddie Browne moved to WBA Clive became the first choice 'keeper for Aldershot until he was also transferred to WBA in 1957. (The WBA connection was Gordon Clarke who had become the assistant manager to Vic Buckingham and, for a short time succeeded him on his departure from West Brom) Unfortunately, Clive's career at the top level was to be short lived as, after securing a regular first team slot, he sustained a serious back injury in late 1959. On medical advice he retired in March 1960. Now residing in Christchurch but still keenly keeping an eye on the progress of Aldershot Town F.C
