International Career:

Having represented England at cadet and junior levels – and GB at under-20 - the summer of 2009 finally saw Clark step up to Chris Finch’s senior squad in the build-up to EuroBasket in Poland. After helping the team qualify for the 2011 finals in Lithuania, he was a key factor, averaging 8.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. At the London Olympics, he made five appearances and had a tournament-high 14 points against Australia.
