Marsh: Clifford (Cliff)
Born: Atherton, Nr Manchester: 29-12-1920
Debut: v West Bromwich Albion (h): 02-10-1948
Marsh was with Tyldesley United before joining Cheshire League team Winsford United.
Leeds paid Winsford £300 in September 1948 for Marsh, just three months after he had
rejected terms from Grimsby Town. He went virtually straight into the first team, scoring on
debut, in what proved to be his only goal for Leeds. After his initial game at inside right
in the 1-3 home loss to West Bromwich Albion, he was recalled in January for the 0-0 draw at
Luton Town and was then inside left in the Leeds team that succumbed to the wizardry of
Harold Williams as he led Third Division Newport County to an upset 1-3 win at Elland Road
in the Third Round of the FA Cup. He was included at inside right at Southampton for a 1-2
defeat and the final game of the season in a 0-2 defeat at Queens Park Rangers. He left
Elland Road for Bournemouth in March 1949, where he featured in thirty-nine League games but
scored only twice. A noted trumpet player, he left Bournemouth for Worcester City and then
Yeovil Town in June 1952. He died in Bournemouth in December 1990.
