Billy Clarke Stunner The Pick Of Three Irish Goals In Bradford FA Cup Win

If you have been following our weekly Irish player ratings article here at Balls, you will know that there is no shortage of Irish talent lower down the English football pyramid.

A few clubs boast a number of Irish players, with Bradford City one of the best examples. The League Two club have four Irishmen in their first team squad, with Reece Staunton, Paudie O'Connor, Anthony O'Connor, and Billy Clarke all regulars this season.

Bradford got their FA Cup campaign underway this afternoon, producing a convincing 7-0 victory at non-league club Tonbridge.

Anthony O'Connor got the scoring underway in the game, with the defender nodding home from close range in the sixth minute.

The pick of the goals came from Billy Clarke.

It came in the 14th minute, curling home a beautiful free-kick from the edge of the box.

Clarke would score his second on the stroke of halftime, taking the total number of Irish goals in the game to three.

The 32-year old has had an excellent start to the campaign, scoring one goal and registering three assists in eight League Two appearances. Unfortunately, that hasn't translated to team success with Bradford currently sitting in 15th place in the table.
