Versatile and highly consistent, Clive Philp was one of Hawthorn's finest players during a predominantly inauspicious era for the club (one of many such during its first three decades in the VFL). Between 1948 and 1955 he played a total of 112 VFL games, occupying a variety of positions including follower, centre half forward, centre half back, full back and full forward. He possessed all the skills of the game in abundance, and applied them with consummate tenacity and purpose. Philp played for the VFL on three occasions.
