And after two promotions in that time, Clarke waved an emotional goodbye to Bramall Lane earlier this week in a statement on his Instagram account. The former Wolves man scored 29 league goals for the Blades – so we had a look back through our archives to pick 11 of our favourites.
Let us know which is your favourite … there’s one clear favourite!
1. v Chesterfield, 2016
An almost dismissive finish with his left foot from outside the area, perfectly placed into the bottom corner to cap a 4-1 victory for the Blades Photo: Simon Bellis
2. v Northampton, 2017
A landmark goal on an iconic game. Clarke went through one-on-one and stuck the ball away emphatically to get the Blades back into it, before John Fleck's late winner Photo: Simon Bellis
3. v Port Vale, 2017
Possibly, technically, the best of the lot. Chris Basham helped the ball into the box before Clarke picked it out of the air and smashed it, first-time, into the top corner on the volley Photo: Simon Bellis
4. v Wednesday, 2017
Two goals on his return to his former club, to seal a win over the Blades' oldest rivals that will never be forgotten. David Brooks and Mark Duffy stole the show, but Clarke's contribution should never be overlooked Photo: Simon Bellis
