Manager Lee Johnson, who named himself as a substitute, was called into action midway through the first half when one of their two trialists limped off.
Clarke-Harris made it 2-0 in the 37th minute with a fabulous free kick from 30 yards into the top corner of the net.
Latics' keeper Joel Coleman made a decent save to deny a Shrewsbury trialist as Latics preserved their two-goal advantage.
And in stoppage time Clarke-Harris struck again with a superb turn on the edge of the box before walloping a shot low past Anyon into the bottom corner of the net.
