Club career

Born in the island of Jersey, Clare had moved to Grimsby as a youngster and made his league debut for Grimsby Town near the end of the 1995–96 season when he came on as a substitute at home against Sheffield United on 20 April 1996. At the time he was 17 years of age. His next appearance came a year and a half later, against Southend United, while his first start came against Carlisle United on 20 December 1997, when he was selected due to the injuries of Lee Nogan and Jack Lester. The team won that game 1–0 thanks to a goal from John McDermott. That year Clare was part of the Town side that won promotion from the Second Division via the play-offs, though he took no part in the play-off final, and played on the winning side in the Football League Trophy. He was voted as young player of the year for both Grimsby and the Republic of Ireland. During his time at Grimsby Town he had two loan spells at Northampton Town and one at Cheltenham Town.

Clare joined Boston United on a free transfer in July 2001 after a trial there.[2] He was a prolific goalscorer at Boston, scoring 24 goals in the Football Conference as he helped them to win promotion to the Football League at the end of the 2001–02 season.[3] He was transfer-listed by the club in September 2002 after refusing to be selected for a place as a substitute,[3] and joined Chester City six weeks later,[4] where his 29 league goals in the 2003–04 season contributed to the club's return to the Football League. He returned to Boston in November 2004,[5] before joining Conference side Crawley Town in August 2005 for a club record fee.[1] He left Crawley in March 2006 after the club ran into financial difficulties,[6][7] and joined Burton Albion.[8] He scored 18 goals in his first season at Burton and signed a new one-year contract in May 2007.[9] He scored two goals in a losing cause in the semi-final of the play-offs. After scoring 42 goals in 93 games for Burton, he rejected the offer of a new contract and joined Rushden & Diamonds for the 2008–09 season.[10] He requested a transfer in January 2009 so as to be closer to his family, and media speculation suggested that he had become a transfer target for Gainsborough Trinity,[11] although this move failed to materialise. Clare was signed on loan until the end of the season by Mansfield Town on 10 March. He scored on his debut after coming on as a substitute away at Grays Athletic.[12] He signed for Mansfield permanently on a one-year contract on 22 May and joined Gateshead on a three-month loan on 16 October.[13][14] Clare signed a permanent contract with Gateshead on 8 January 2010, moving there on a free transfer.[15] He left Gateshead at the end of the season and signed for Cambridge United on a two-year deal joining the U's for a fee of £10,000 on 1 July 2010.[16] On 5 September 2010, Clare scored his first goal for Cambridge in a 5-0 win against his old team Gateshead F.C. He also had a penalty saved in this game. Clare joined Alfreton Town on loan from Cambridge in February 2011.[17]

Clare signed a one-month loan deal for Gainsborough Trinity on 10 August 2011.[18] He was released by Cambridge United on 22 September 2011.[19] After resigning as Louth Town manager, he signed for United Counties League side Boston Town in November 2013, where he is also part of the coaching team.

International career

Clare has represented the Republic of Ireland at under-21 and B international level.

Management career

Having seen out the remainder of the 2011-12 season as a free agent following his departure from Cambridge in September 2011, Clare completed his coaching badges with The Football Association and after rejecting offers by other clubs as a player he was appointed manager of Louth Town on 18 June 2012.[20] Clare resigned as manager of Louth Town on 29 October 2013 following several successive defeats for his side this season 2013-14 [21]
