Clarke, 25, is set to up sticks and move to Spain for six months which could mean he misses a chunk of Armagh’s 2015 league campaign.

However, this is not unfamiliar territory for the reigning Armagh champions as Clarke was again absent throughout the club’s run to the Ulster quarter-finals in 2013.

Cross’ begin their championship campaign against Sarsfields in the Athletic Grounds this Sunday evening which will be the second of a Live double-header screened by Armagh TV.
