THE last thing Bris­tol Rovers de­fender James Clarke ex­pected at Bury on Tues­day was a neardeath ex­pe­ri­ence – but man­ager Dar­rell Clarke says he is lucky to be alive.

The 27-year-old was rushed to hos­pi­tal af­ter an al­ler­gic re­ac­tion to nuts and was re­tained overnight af­ter the in­ci­dent, which could have cost him his life.

“It was a very big scare; life-threat­en­ing, ” said man­ager Clarke.

“My med­i­cal team and Bury’s med­i­cal team acted very quickly to get him off to hos­pi­tal.

“The doc­tors ad­vised that, if had he not been treated so quickly, he could have been dead.”
