Lochie Philp, the youngest player on the field, took the catch at point late in the Coutas' D-Grade clash with St Leonards on Saturday October 15 to notch up the milestone.
"It's kind of what our club is about at the moment, junior development, and for Lochie to be involved, I couldn't have scripted it any better," the 52 year old said.
"The milestone was brought to my attention at the end of last season but it hadn't really crossed my mind. Usually prior to Saturday's my mind is occupied with player selection and having a fun time playing with a bunch of great blokes."
Clifton, who spent much of his career as an A-grade bowler, finished the tied match with an impressive 3 -7 from eight overs.
"Six hundred wickets may not be out of the question, if I find some trigger finger umpires to help me out," he joked.
