Richard Selvey Clinton (born 1 September 1981) is an English cricketer. He is a left-handed batsman and occasional right-arm medium-pace bowler.
Born in Sidcup, Kent, he made his first-class debut for Essex against Surrey in 2001. He batted at number six in the first innings, making 36, but opened the batting in the second and hit 58 not out. His List A debut a few days later was also personally successful, albeit in a losing cause, as he scored 56 from 57 balls against Durham; as of June 2006, this remains his highest List A score.
Clinton made his maiden first-class hundred (107) against Cambridge UCCE in 2002, but left the county at the end of the season. He moved to Surrey in 2004 to replace Jonathan Batty as opening batsman. For the following season he competed actively for the opening batsman's position with James Benning and was given a new two year contract at the end of 2004.
Clinton enjoyed a long run in the team in 2005, hitting 811 first-class runs at 31.39 and hitting two centuries and five fifties. However, he made only three appearances in the one-day game, aggregating only 21 runs from these.
He has also made several first-class appearances for Loughborough UCCE, having graduated from Loughborough University in 2006.
His father Grahame had a significant first-class career with Kent and Surrey, while his cousin Paul has played a handful of first-class games for Oxford UCCE.

Famous quotes containing the words clinton and/or richard:
“Throughout the 1980s, we did hear too much about individual gain and the ethos of selfishness and greed. We did not hear enough about how to be a good member of a community, to define the common good and to repair the social contract. And we also found that while prosperity does not trickle down from the most powerful to the rest of us, all too often indifference and even intolerance do.”
—Hillary Rodham Clinton (b. 1947)
“Stay on the beach. The natives over there are cannibals. They eat liars with the same enthusiasm as they eat honest men.”
