‘How are you so fast?’, ‘baller’: Some fans react to 19-year-old Arsenal loanee’s display last night

Arsenal academy defender Harry Clarke has embarked on the first loan spell of his career, linking up with Oldham until the end of January.

The 19-year-old has been with Arsenal since 2015, when he joined the Gunners academy from hometown club Ipswich.

Clarke signed his first professional contract with Arsenal in August 2018, and following an impressive season with the Under-23s, penned a new deal in December 2019.

More recently, the 6ft 2in gem captained Arsenal’s U21s against Crawley in their EFL Trophy win, and is also an England youth international.

Clarke made his debut in last night’s 1-1 draw against Carlisle and, despite coming on in the 85th minute, made an instant impression on the Oldham faithful, shoring up a defence which had previously shipped 13 goals in their opening five games.

Here is what some fans said on social media:

 

Oldham fell behind in the 54th minute as Aaron Hayden opened the scoring, but equalised with 10 minutes to go through Zak Dearnley.

Up next for the Latics, who sit 19th in the League Two table, is Saturday’s home fixture against Port Vale.
