Joe Clarke Statement

After the Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) hearing held on Thursday, Joe Clarke has released the following statement.

With the CDC proceedings completed I would like to apologise to everyone concerned for my involvement in the WhatsApp group.

I acknowledge that what I did fell well below the standards expected of a professional sportsman. I am relieved I can now put this chapter behind me. I am extremely grateful for the guidance and support I have received from the PCA, Phoenix Management and Nottinghamshire CCC during this difficult time.

I have learned a great deal over the past two years and I am thankful that I can now move forward and focus wholly on the rest of the season. I hope I can end the year on a positive note with Notts.”
