Clements, Dave In clubs played for, there is no mention of Portadown from where he made his move to England, having been transferred by the then Portadown manager Gibby McKenzie. I was editing the local paper at the time and I have happy memories of the joy Dave brought to the Ports fans. I too remember that goal he scored against Scotland when George Best played the game of his life. Regards to Dave from Portadown where he is fondly remembered.

Clements, Dave Scored winning goal against Scotland at Windsor Park where I saw the most mesmeric performance of ballet & football on a gluepit pitch from the irrepressible George Best. Veteran Ronnie Simpson kept the score respectable for the Scots.
