Truro City sign death crash keeper McCormick
Former Plymouth Argyle keeper Luke McCormick, who was jailed in 2008 for killing two young boys in a car crash while drink-driving, has signed non contract forms for Blue Square Bet South side Truro City and will make his debut in the FA Trophy at Farnborough today.
The 29-year-old was sentenced to seven years and four months, but was released from Leyhill Prison earlier this year and had been training with Swindon but they decided not to sign him.
City needed a goalkeeper after regular No1 Tim Sandercombe suffered a knee injury against AFC Hornchurch last week.
But the decision by manager Lee Hodges to sign McCormick, who played 138 times for Argyle, is sure to spark very mixed reactions from supporters.
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 2008. McCormick was twice the drink-driving limit.
