Didn't lived up to our initial hopes, and at 28 years old it's hard
to see him now making that step up. Tries hard and does his best, but
fluffed several easy chances when he was at Leeds and didn't really
seem to have the striker's instinct.
He moved on to Huddersfield in summer 1999 where he has been an
outstanding success in the slightly less demanding environment of
Division 1. A broken arm and other serious injuries sustained in a car
accident in 2000 kept him out for most of the rest of that season and
although he came back into the Huddersfield side he was sold to help
set the club's finances on an even keel in the run-up to deadline
day in 2002.
He scored three good goals in his short stint at Preston but having
failed to agree terms with the club went round several other clubs on
trial - Barnsley, Galatasaray and Oldham where he is played on a
non-contract basis. He joined up with SC Beira Mar in the Portuguese
league on 7 August 2003.
Simon Bryant says: He seemed like a great guy, with an unfortunate
history, including a nasty run in with a crash barrier on the M62! I
personally witnessed the accident, and as a die hard huddersfield town
fan, i'd have to say it was a sad day for me. Since that day we forged
a great relationship, still in touch with him, and I can say with a
smile, he's doing fine. Things are looking good in oldham. He's
destined for great things, this is a guy to look for in the
Mark Ogden says: Best player ever to grace the second division!!

Stewart Bingham says: Hey Ogden, Oi! Good stuff you say. Really is

virgil wijnhard says: clyde wijnhard is my nephew he's a great
soccer player and he's the best of the best clyde i gonna call you one
of these days
Craig says: When he was here at Preston I personally thought that,
although he scored 3 goals - and they were good goals, he wasn't cut
out for the first division. He certainly isn't now that teams like
West Ham and Sunderland are competing.
Gabriel says: Clyde is playing for Beira Mar in Portugal and is
doing well. He has scored some big goals against quality opposition.
Seems to be a crowd favourite. Leeds the team in goals.
Simon says: I met Clyde when he was at Oldham, my son had a picture
taken with him and this he says is the best day of his life. He's a
gereat guy and I wish him well in Portugal. He is a class striker.
Ivar says: I'm a SC Beira-Mar portuguese fan and I'm very happy for
having Clyde Wijnhard playing here in Aveiro. He seems to be a very
nice person, and always does his best in the field. I just do not
understand why doesn't he have a team in England, where everybody
wants to play...
josh 19 says: I met him after he played for OLDHAM he was the best
and he is my insperation he is.. my hero.
Karen and Trevor Daniels say: We met Clyde on holiday in the
Maldives and didn't know who is was but thought he was a really nice
guy and his girlfriend was lovely too. We didn't get the chance to say
goodbye to them. We would like to wish Clyde all the best for the
