David Clarkson is an experienced striker who signed for Bristol City in June 2009. He scored on his debut for the Robins against Preston on the opening day of the 2009-10 campaign, but was often on the bench during his first season at Ashton Gate. It was a similar tale in 2010-11 when he alternated between a place in the starting line-up and on the bench. Perhaps the highlight of his season was an amazing added-time goal that clinched a somewhat fortunate 2-0 home over Leicester City in November; intercepting former City goalkeeper Chris Weale's misjudged throw-out, David found the net with a lofted volley. David began his career at Motherwell, where he made over 250 first-team appearances before moving south.
