He began his career at Stockport County, where he had progressed through the Centre of Excellence youth system, making his debut as a substitute in a 4-1 defeat at Fulham. He spent one season at Blackpool, before re-joining Stockport.
During the 2006-07 season, Clare was part of the Stockport County side that set a record for winning nine games in a row without conceding. He was notable for playing every minute of that nine-game run.
In June 2008, Clare was released from his contract with Stockport County after an injury-plagued year. Injury forced Clare to retire prematurely at the age of 25. He is now pursuing referee and coaching qualifications.
