Notts County’s Clamp succumbs to his wounds


Friday, September 20 – 1918
A week or two ago it was reported that the condition of Private Arthur Clamp, the Notts County, centre half-back, who was lying wounded in hospital, gave cause for grave anxiety, and yesterday it was announced that his death took place. Joining the forces last April, Clamp only went overseas a few weeks ago, and had been in the front line trenches three days when he was wounded. Clamp from 1906 to the 1914-15 season, was one of the best defenders Notts had. He possessed remarkable stamina, and excelled as a breaker-up of combination.
