Vale Jack Clarke

The South Australian Cricket Association is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of SACA Honorary Life Member, Jack Clarke. 

Born in Renmark in 1954, Clarke was a cricket fanatic who had a massive involvement in the game. 

A former player for Glenelg District Cricket Club, the solicitor rose through the off-field ranks of Australian cricket – sitting on the SACA board for 21 years before being named chair of Cricket Australia for three years.

Clarke was also a Director of the Kerry Packer Cricket Foundation, a member of the Lord's Taverners Club and member of the South Australian Bradman Library Appeal Committee.

He was named an Honorary Life member of SACA in September 2012, after his decades of service to the organisation. 

“Jack's 21 years on the SACA Board is a testament to his unwavering commitment to South Australian Cricket and Cricket Australia and his passion for the game was evident to all who knew him,” SACA President Will Rayner said. 

"Jack was one of the true characters of the game. His laugh and zest for life was infectious, and we will miss him dearly.

“Our thoughts are with his wife Sue, and daughters Georgie and Lucy during this difficult time."
