Clyde Heath was a brilliant mark and a good kick. In 1936, the utility from Cummins accepted an invitation to train with Norwood and showed glimpses of his ability
in an internal trial, playing in the centre and at centre-half forward.
Having further impressed as a utility in the Reserves, Heath made his senior debut against Glenelg in Round 3, 1936. He was named 19th man and the Redlegs defeated Glenelg 20.15 to 12.5. The following week he was named as one of the Reserves for the match against South Adelaide.
In July he travelled to Clare with the Norwood squad to play a combined Stanley Association team.
His next league appearance was in Round 13 against North Adelaide. Again he was named 19th man and Norwood won a close one at home by five points.
Norwood trounced Glenelg in his final league appearance a couple of weeks later.
Heath had a solid season in the Reserves, and played as a half-forward in the finals series.
During the year, he represented the Inter-Association Reserves as a half forward against Western Australia and Port Pirie
