A strong and commanding central defender who can play out from the back when required, Jamal Clarke joined Hinckley AFC in the summer of 2016.
After starting out at Evesham United, he joined AFC Rushden and Diamonds in July 2013 and was a regular in Diamonds’ back four during that season.
He picked up an injury the following pre-season, though, joining Daventry Town on a dual registration deal, and has since spent time abroad.
He has a good level of experience at steps four and five, and will be a threat from set pieces going forward.
Carl Abbott hopes he can form a solid central defensive partnership with Ryan Paddock, which he says will be a big factor in the side.
