Clare: I could play for Chester again

Blues legend Daryl Clare has refused to rule out a possible return to Chester in the future. Clare, who was inducted into the City Fans United Hall of Fame last week was speaking to the Chester Chronicle when he revealed that he would jump at the chance to return to the Deva at some point in the future. The 31-year-old striker, who is currently playing for Blues Square Premier side Gateshead, plans to continue playing the highest stage possible for the time being but if Chester could win promotion and continue to climb the leagues then Clare sees no reason why he couldn't pull on the blue and white shirt again. He told the Chronicle, “I could definitely see myself playing for Chester again. “It’s not unrealistic to think that our paths may cross again. I’ll be coming towards the end of my career in the next three or fours years, while we’re all very hopeful of Chester progressing, so I wouldn’t rule it out.” Clare supplied the goals (alongside Darren Stamp) that fired Chester to the Conference Championship in 2004 and his strike record of 48 goald in 60 City appearances is the reason why he is revered as a modern-day Blues legend. He was stunned to receive such a rapturous reception last week at the Guildhall from the crowd of over 500 Chester fans and firmly believes that the passion showed amongst the fans last Thursday night is why the club is now in such safe hands. “To be entering the club’s Hall of Fame is something very special. The love for this club seems stronger than ever. If everyone stays loyal and stays passionate, this club can get back to where it once was.”
