[VIDEO] Clare vows to bounce back in 2014

JonathanClareAll-rounder Jonathan Clare has put the worries of an injury-hit 2013 season behind him as he vows to come back stronger than ever next summer.

During an injury-shortened campaign, the 27-year-old claimed 17 first-class wickets at a shade over 32, but failed to feature in the Club’s final eight LV= County Championship Division One fixtures.

After an end of season recuperation period, Clare is now back to full fitness and has been taking part fully in pre-season training at the County Ground. He will now be putting in the hours over the winter to ensure he’s back 100 per cent for the start of the new season in April.  

“Any time you get injured it’s frustrated,” Clare said. “Watching the lads last season come in and train, especially when they were struggling, was frustrating and I would have loved to have been out there with them.

“But unfortunately my back wasn’t up to it. But I will be working harder than anyone to get that right this winter.
