Clare undergoes successful operation

JonathanClareAll-rounder Jonathan Clare underwent a successful operation last week to remedy the lower back pain which ruled him out for the majority of the 2014 season.

The 28-year-old featured in only one Derbyshire First XI fixture last summer due to his injury.

After extensive testing to diagnose the problem, Clare underwent surgery in London last Monday to resolve the issue. He now faces a four to six-month rehabilitation period hoping to be fully fit for the start of May. 

“I underwent a successful operation to solve the problem and I’m now looking forward to the future,” Clare said.

“It’s been very frustrating; I’ve been tearing my hair out. I’m sure a lot of other people have been as well.

“The problem grew from an old stress fracture when I was 16. All of the stress was going onto one side which is not a great thing to be doing when you’re a bowler.

VIDEO: Madsen targeting quick start in 2015

WayneMadsenWayne Madsen is hoping the squad can maintain the form shown at the end of the 2014 campaign as they target a quick start to the new season.

Graeme Welch’s men finished the season by winning five out their last six LV= County Championship fixtures to finish fourth in Division Two.

Preparations for the new season have already begun at The 3aaa County Ground and Madsen believes, with the pre-season schedule in place, Derbyshire can start well in 2015.

“Pre-season has been good,” Madsen said. “It’s great that the whole squad is back together. We are all motivated to get ourselves fit and ready for the season, although it seems a long way off.

“I can’t fault the training that we’ve been doing so far; it’s excellent. The coaches have set out a great programme for us and the boys are making the most of it and really putting in the hard yards.
