Confirmed: Shamrock Rovers' Trevor Clarke ruled out for the season with cruciate injury
Shamrock Rovers have suffered a major blow as star defender Trevor Clarke will miss the rest of the season due to injury.
As reported by Aidan Fitzmaurice in the Herald yesterday, Clarke suffered a cruciate injury in training this week and the defender has now confirmed he is out for the season.
Tough one to take that I will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury ! But couldn’t be at a better club to get me back right again 💪⚽️ long road but I’ll be back !!— Trevor Clarke (@trevor_clarke20) March 29, 2018
Clarke sat out the first two games of this season due to suspension but once he was back in the side he showed signs of the talent which made him a cross channel target.
Rovers badly missed striker Graham Burke during a long injury layoff last season and Clarke, who mainly played at left back but also featured in midfield, will be a big loss, especially as Rovers look to challenge in the Europa League as well as the Premier Division.
Rovers, beaten 2-1 away to Waterford last week, face Sligo Rovers in Tallaght Stadium on Good Friday.
