NORTHWICH Victoria have signed again striker Michael Clarke following his release from Rushall last week.

The 23-year-old is available to play in Vics’ Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One South encounter against Hucknall tonight, Wednesday.

He left the club last summer after the Pics paid a fee, their first ever, for the ex-Woodley Sports forward’s services.

However his spell with the Premier Division outfit ended after he failed to hold down a regular place in the starting line-up.

Clarke scored 21 goals in 59 appearances for Northwich following a switch to play for then manager Andy Preece in March 2011.
