Clarke & Osman Set For Reunion
Everton academy product set for first Everton return.
Peter Clarke may have only earned a handful of first-team appearances for Everton but his formative years as a footballer made an impression on the players who worked alongside him.
Leon Osman was one of those players and, having progressed through the Everton Youth Academy with the tall defender, the Blues' midfield-man is not surprised Clarke has forged a career for himself in the game.

Since departing Goodison, Clarke has racked up a total of 294 league appearances at five different clubs including Huddersfield, Wednesday's Carling Cup second round opponents.
Osman believes the qualities that impressed teammates and coaches alike during his early years with the Blues continue to shine out. And will be evident at Goodison again on Wednesday night when David Moyes' men take on the Terriers.
He told evertontv: "He's had a good career and it's testament to the sort of character he is. He has a never-say-die type of character and that shows with his performances on the pitch.
"We were in the youth team together so Wednesday is a game I am looking forward to."
