Clem Hill, who shared a famous name but was not related to the great batsman, was a schoolteacher from Gulgong who enjoyed a brief but very successful first-class career as an orthodox slow left-armer. When his family moved to Sydney, he joined the North Sydney Club and worked his way up through the grades before his career as a teacher interrupted his progress when in 1926 he was posted to the Hunter Valley. He returned to Sydney in 1930 and resumed where he left off, and was joined by another schoolteacher, Bill O'Reilly. Both bowled at virtual medium pace and both had the same hatred of batsmen. They formed a devastating partnership, and in 1931-32 North Sudney won their first premiership since 1912-13, O'Reilly taking 54 wickets (7.88) and Hill 38 (17.28).
