Luke McCormick, the ex- British goalkeeper was born in Coventry during 1983. The origins associated with his career bore a strange familiarity to that of a Hollywood movie. Followed closely by way of Sky Sports news, McCormick started out his career during the 2003- 2004 season as the backup for Romain Larrieu. Improving towards his spot, McCormick acquired seven consecutive clean sheets and also proceeded to set a new club record. All the Plymouth Argyle supporters also voted him one of the most promising gamer of the year. He ended up being then sent on loan to Boston United of League Two in October 2004, by Bobby Williamson who was then the Plymouth Argyle manager.
Then he transferred to Leicester City F. C along with Ian Holloway, the previous Plymouth Argyle Manager. His career graph went up progressively and consistently from then on and McCormick gave impressive performances in the final games in 2007-2008 season.
The cloud settled upon his occupation when on June 7th, 2008, Luke McCormick was busted for suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving while he was on his way back coming from a former team mates wedding ceremony. The Central Motorway Police Group, which was responsible for arresting McCormick, stated McCormick’s Range Rover collided with a Toyota Previa leading to the passing away of Aaron as well as Ben Peak of age groups 10 as well as eight respectively.
The driver in the car had been the children’s father who had been seriously hurt and also has to be taken to the Hospital Of North Staffordshire. It was then found that he had sustained multiple fractures on the neck, ribs and his back and his lungs were also swollen. The other three people in the Previa had been cared for for modest injuries.
He had been charged along with 2 counts of death brought on by hazardous driving, driving together with alcohol inside his bloodstream as well as driving without insurance coverage by way of the Staffordshire Police the next day. On June 9 he was presented before the Fenton Magistrate Court and ended up being granted conditional bail. On June 16 he appeared before the Stroke-on-Trent Crown Court in which the charges regarding driving without an insurance were dropped against him. This case was finally tried during October 2008 when he was sentenced to 7 years and four months of jail period.
Sky Sports news revealed that Luke McCormick pleaded guilty over the charges filed towards him. The amount of alcohol found in his bloodstream was two times the actual permissible drink and drive limit. McCormick confessed of having fallen asleep over the controls that night that resulted in the terrible crash.
The aftershocks of the incident started when on 22nd July, 2008 Plymouth Argyle cancelled Luke McCormickï¿½s agreement of goalkeeper within a month of the accident. It was informed to press people as well as Sky Sports News that the contract was terminated upon mutual consent. He had also been suspended with Plymouth at the start of the month and also had been requested to not show up at the actual pre-season training.
Conflict continues to encircle Luke McCormick even now. He created a storm the moment his jail team authorities sent a request towards the south Devon League to ensure that he could possibly play in the Division Two side. In a report in Sky Sports news it was observed that some South Devon League officials were displeased with this particular request as they feel that McCormick should be penalized for his action and not be permitted to spend time playing football.
