McClure: Rest has reinvigorated me

16 April 2013

Joint-top scorer Matt McClure says he feels refreshed after his enforced injury lay-off.

The 68-page programme from the original fixture in March will be accompanied by an eight-page insert, which includes ‘The Gaffer’, ‘Blues News’, the in-depth interview with McClure and a review of Saturday’s success over the Shots.

He added: “The break probably did me a little favour truth be told. I was feeling a little bit leggy, maybe not as sharp as I was before, but the couple of weeks’ rest has helped.”

“Scoring on my return from injury will hopefully help me keep my place for Northampton.”

“It was extra special to mark it with a goal. I hadn’t scored for four games so it was important for me to get back on the scoresheet.

“It was a great day,” McClure told ‘1887’. “I didn’t know it was my 50th appearance until after the game, but I’m looking forward to the next 50 now. It’s flown by!

The 21-year-old was back with a bang on Saturday, scoring the opener and setting up the winner in the 2-1 victory over Aldershot Town following a hamstring complaint.
