insider

Here is my best explanation:

'clique member' is the definition.

'cool with scrumpy they say' is the wordplay.
'cool' becomes 'in' (I've seen this in other clues).
'with' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'scrumpy' becomes 'cider' (I've seen this before).
'they say' indicates a 'sounds like' (homophone) clue.
'cider' sounds like 'sider'.
'in'+'sider'='INSIDER'
