H. Clark was another fine Philadelphia bowler, considered second
only to King. During international play, he was often paired with
Bart King and together they were a particularly effective 1-2 combination.
Percy started playing with Young America Juniors in 1885 but was not
bowling yet. By 1889 he was bowling and coming into his own. That
year, the juniors from Tioga played the juniors of Young America in
a low scoring match. Percy took seven wickets for 20, five of them
clean bowled while King turned back nine men for only 6 runs, eight
clean bowled. A minor match at the time ... but an event marking the
start of the ascendency of Philadelphia cricket to a world class level.
