Jay Clarke Support Continues
Morecrofts have agreed another year of financial support for Derby’s Jay Clarke. Clarke, who is 20 years old and from Derby, is currently ranked Britain’s number 6 and world number 236. Last year Jay’s ranking went up to world number 173 and Britain’s number 3, and with a new coach on board and plans to play in numerous Challenger events and ATP events this year, he hopes to secure a regular place in the World’s top 100 over the next couple of years.
Jared Mitchell commented that “it’s important that we support local talent and Jay is certainly talented. He’s at the business end of the rankings now in tennis terms and the higher you go the harder it becomes, but at 20 years old this young Derby lad has great local support as well as international support. We are sure he will realise his goals of becoming a World top 100 player over the next 2 or 3 years and wish him and his family all the best!”
