No Swindon move for McCormick
Luke McCormick, who was imprisoned in 2008 for killing two young boys in a car crash while drink-driving, will not be signing for Swindon.
The 29-year-old goalkeeper had been training with the npower League One club after his release from Leyhill Prison earlier this year. He was sentenced to seven years and four months in 2008 after Arron Peak, 10, and his brother Ben, aged eight, died when the vehicle they were travelling in was hit by McCormick's Range Rover on the M6 in Staffordshire in June of that year. McCormick was twice the drink-driving limit. Swindon chairman Jeremy Wray said in May he would resign if the decision to allow McCormick to train with his club damaged its reputation. Swindon have released a statement on their official website which read: "After careful and considered thought Luke McCormick has decided to pursue footballing opportunities away from Swindon Town FC but remains eternally grateful for the support and friendship that the club has extended towards him in recent times. "Following his release from prison, Swindon Town offered him the opportunity to train at the club as part of his rehabilitation. The club made it clear from the outset that a full-time professional contract would not be on offer for some considerable time, if at all."
