Comments on the clue
1.Succinct with a surface that works, but 'AGNE' as a straight string doesn't seem to be ideal in clueing
2.Club seems like a stretch as an anagrind, but I felt this deserved points for brevity.
3.I don't think 'club' is an acceptable anagrind. 'Clubbed' might be, but then wrecks the surface
4.imperative anagrind needs to be before fodder
