Before joining Sky Clare spent six years working on the other side of the camera in media relations dealing with some of the biggest football stories of the 1990’s.
While working at the Football Association as a Media Officer, she experienced some of football’s most controversial incidents including Paul Merson’s confessions to gambling, drink and drug addictions and the controversy surrounding George Graham’s departure from Highbury.
Clare also dealt with the press following the riots in Dublin in February 1995 and experienced the euphoria of Euro ’96 while based at Burnham Beaches with the England squad.
