A welsh international at schoolboy, Youth,U21 and senior levels, Clayton
Blackmore was born at Neath and had trials with his hometown rugby club
before deciding to concentrate on soccer. He joined UNITED as an associate
schoolboy at 14 years of age, and was an FA Youth Cup finalist in 82, when
UNITED lost to Watford over 2 legs and extra time, 7-6 on aggregate! He made
his league debut, at full back, in the final match of the season in 83-4 but
did not become a serious contender for a first team place until 85-6. He had
,in fact, played only twice for UNITED when he won the first of his Welsh
caps, making a sub apperance against Norway in Bergen on 5th June 85.
Capable of a sound performance in any midfield or defensive role, he was
possibly too vresatile for his own good-able to fill most positions without
managing to claim one on a long term basis. Blackmore, uniquely, wore every
UNITED shirt from number 2 - 11 plus number 12 and 14!! He was awarded an FA
Cup winners medal for his substitute appearance in the 1990 final against
Crystal Palace, although he did not appear in the replay which UNITED won
1-0. He was Football League Cup finalist in April 91, but the disappointment
of losing to Sheff Wed was eased in the following month when he picked up a
European Cup Winners Cup medal for his performance against Barcelona at
Rotterdam. His outings during Uniteds two successfull Premiership campaigns
were limited, however, and following a free transfer in May 94 he linked up
with Bryan Robson as new manager`s first signing at Middlesborough.
