A Tribute to a TOP Blue!

Comments (3)

I was gutted to hear the news of the untimely death of AJ Clarke, truly one of the most dedicated Evertonians I have ever known.

I had the pleasure of AJ's friendship as I'm sure many of you who regularly visit this site have also. I haven't seen him for a few years as I live in Bangkok and I will be unable to attend his funeral on January 3rd.

I travelled to Rotterdam with AJ for the scene of one of our greatest achievements. I'll never forget Duncan McKenzie being carried on the shoulders of the crowd in Rotterdam's main square. Just one of many truly fantastic memories.

Let us all hope that they catch the murdering scum who took AJ from us!

He liked a drink did AJ, so as I can't be there to say goodbye I'll raise a glass. "To a true blue, you'll be sorely missed. Rest in Peace, mate."

Although I never met Clarky (aj) in person my dad worked with him for about 10 years on the corpy. He is going the funeral to pay tribute to a great man who would go out of his way to help anyone. I hope they catch who did this and then Clarkys family can rest at knowing justice has been done. I think I speak for every evertonian when I say our thoughts are with you at this torrid time.

I would also like to add my sentiments regarding AJ.I became a great friend of his having met him through Mick Behan,a fellow Dublin Blue.We travel over to most home games and can count on one hand the times we didn’t have pint on the County Road with AJ.In short AJ Clarke was the greatest Evertonian i had the privilege to meet and i and a gang of Blues from Dublin shall be on Merseyside to give him the send off he deserves.We’ll never forget you AJ mate.Top Blue.
