Biography:
Tully Tigers junior Jake Clifford first came to the Cowboys in 2016 as a junior member of Aaron Payne’s NYC team.

Sidelined by a serious shoulder injury incurred playing age-group rep footy in March of that year, Clifford spent a frustrating year on the sidelines rehabbing from his surgery.

The dynamic halfback finally made his U20 debut in Round 1 of 2017 and went on to have a dream year as coach Aaron Payne’s chief playmaker.

So impressive was Clifford’s campaign that he was named the NYC Player of the Year, a title he’ll have forever given the national age-group competition wound up in 2017.

The youngster’s efforts were rewarded with a two-year contract in the Cowboys’ senior squad, the 19-year-old keen to get back on the paddock after more off-season shoulder surgery.
