Peter was a centre-half-forward and centre-half-back. He started with the Richmond Thirds in 1967 and he was a member of their 1967, 1968 and 1969 Premiership sides. His strong marking and long kicking were his greatest assets and he won the Reserves’ Best and Fairest award in 1972; however, his career at Richmond was interrupted by a broken leg. An unusual occurrence took place during his time with Richmond relating to the 4 goals he kicked in the seniors. The goals were all kicked against North Melbourne 2 in Round 9 of 1970 and 2 in his last game in Round 4 of 1973. He was a reserve in 10 of his 28 senior games.
After leaving Richmond he had great success with both Oakleigh and North Adelaide. He took 16 marks in the 1974 VFA Grand Final while playing for Oakleigh against Port Melbourne. In 1979 he was second in the South Australian League Best and Fairest, the “Margarey Medal” and represented the state team once. He is the older brother of David Cloke. Peter holds a Science Degree and now runs a newsagency in Bordertown.
