Midfield 83-94 5ft 8" 11st 12lbs b.Neath, 23 Sept 1964 Debut v Nottingham Forest (a) 16/5/84 Career: UNITED assoc s`boy Nov 78, app June 81, pro Sept 82 Middlesboro May 94 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. Appearances: PL 12 - 0 g FL 138 - 19 g FAC 15 - 1 g FLC 23 - 3 g EUR 12 - 2 g Total: 200 apps 20 goals
