Percy Clark toured England with The Philadelphians in 1897 and 1903. A fast bowler who made the ball swerve late, he took 32 wickets for 31.28 runs each in 1897 and six years later dismissed 85 batsmen at an average cost of 20.50. He and Bart King formed the spearhead of the attack on those tours. Against a strong Australian side at Neverford in 1896, Clark took 5 for 49 in the first innings and, going in at No. 10, hit 32, thus doing much to bring about defeat for the visiting team in an innings with 60 runs to spare. He was an honorary member of the Butterflies.
