Adding sand is a fallacy. Fine particle lime and large particle sand because of difference in size are one of the reasons when mixed they bind into concrete.

Adding sand will only make the soil more compact unless you remove half the clay soil and replace it with sand. That's a lot of sand.

Adding compost will keep the soil from getting hard, improving drainage, and adding nutrients.
