Central midfielder Ollie has suffered a spate of injury problems since signing his first professional contract at the club, though he is a highly rated midfielder who has impressed each of the club’s manager’s in the last six years.

He has previously spent time on loan with Gloucester City and local non-league side Mangotsfield United. Following those loans he made his first team debut when going on as a second half substitute in the final game of the 2010/11 season, at Colchester United. 

Having spent the majority of the following season on the sidelines after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament on the first day of pre-season training, Ollie recovered in time to spend the last month or so of the campaign on loan with Clevedon Town and he was offered a new one year contract with Rovers. 

John Ward finally gave Ollie a run in the side towards the end of the 2012/13 campaign and he seized the opportunity with both hands, impressing the manager to the extent that he was offered a new contract, which was signed in the summer of 2013. 

Having suffered a hamstring injury in pre-season, Ollie missed the first few weeks of the 2013/14 campaign, but was soon challenging for a first team spot again and went on to make 38 appearances in all competitions. 

He scored his first goal for the club in the 2-0 win against Portsmouth on 21st December 2013. 

Ollie, who is the club’s longest-serving player, was on the bench for the Vanarama Conference play off final against Grimsby Town. 

In recent season's Clarke has been a constant feature of the Rovers side, with supporters enjoying the tenacious traits of the midfielder. 

During the 2018/19 season, Clarke made just shy of fifty appearances, contributing eight goals to the side and in the March, the midfielder reached the 200 appearance milestone for the Club. 

Ahead of the start of the 2019/20 campaign, Clarke was named Club Captian by Manager Graham Coughlan.
