Clare Tomlinson first started her career in public relations. During the time, she was also the receptionist for Max Clifford and Associates for some time. In the early 90’s, she worked as a media officer at the Football Association.

While working for the FA, she experienced some of the football’s most controversial incidents including Paul Merson’s confessions to gambling, drink and drug addictions and the controversy surrounding George Graham’s departure from Highbury. Later in the same decade, she joined the Arsenal Football Club as the appointed head of the communications department. In the period, she had helped the then new manager, Arsene Wenger, deal with the media.

She then joined BSkyB's UEFA Champions League coverage alongside Richard Keys. In 1998, after working six years in media relations dealing with some of the biggest football stories of the 1990’s, she became the touchline reporter on Sky Sports’ Ford Super Sunday as well as the co-presenter of Goals on Sunday, Sky Sports' Sunday morning football highlights program.

On October 2007, she was placed on leave from Goals on Sunday for two months. This was followed by an infamous interview with former Derby County goalkeeper Stephen Bywater. In the interview, he spelled out the C word during an anecdote, and was not reprimanded for it by Tomlinson or co-presenter Chris Kamara.
