Clare was brought in by former boss Brian Little to help the Blues attack. But the ex-Chester City and Burton forward made just one start during his month at the Northolme. Steve Housham revealed the 33-year-old did not figure in his plans with the club’s current crop of strikers all ahead of him in the pecking order. “It’s been a bit of a disappointing time for Daryl during his month at Gainsborough but I’ve got nothing but praise for the lad.” “During training he was a true professional, he worked hard but unfortunately he didn’t break into what we were trying to do,” he said.
Clare’s only start for Trinity came under Little in the 3-0 defeat at Hinckley United in August.
