Luke McCormick, the ex- British goalkeeper was born in Coventry during 1983. The beginnings associated with his career bore a strange familiarity to that of a Hollywood movie. Followed meticulously by Sky Sports news, McCormick began his job during the 2003- 2004 season as the backup with regard to Romain Larrieu. Stepping up to his position, McCormick acquired 7 consecutive clean sheets and also proceeded to create a new club record. All the Plymouth Argyle supporters also voted him one of the most promising player of the year. He was then sent on loan to Boston United of League Two during October 2004, through Bobby Williamson who was then the Plymouth Argyle manager.
He then moved to Leicester City F. C together with Ian Holloway, the previous Plymouth Argyle Manager. His career chart rose progressively and also regularly after that and McCormick gave amazing shows during the final games of 2007-2008 season.
The actual cloud settled upon his career when in June 7th, 2008, Luke McCormick was busted on suspicion involving causing death by dangerous driving while he had been on his way back coming from a previous team mates wedding. The Central Motorway Police Group, which was in charge of arresting McCormick, stated McCormick’s Range Rover collided along with a Toyota Previa leading to the death of Aaron and Ben Peak of ages ten and 8 respectively.
The driver in the vehicle had been the children’s father who was seriously hurt and has to be taken to the Hospital Of North Staffordshire. It had been then found that he had sustained multiple fractures on the neck, ribs and his back and his lungs were also swollen. Another 3 passengers in the Previa were treated with regard to minor injuries.
He had been charged with 2 counts of death caused by hazardous driving, driving together with alcohol in his blood and also driving without insurance by the Staffordshire Police the very next day. On June 9 he was presented before the Fenton Magistrate Court and ended up being given conditional bail. On June 16 he appeared before the Stroke-on-Trent Crown Court in which the charges on driving without an insurance ended up dropped towards him. This particular case had been ultimately tried in October 2008 when he was sentenced to seven years and four months of jail period.
Sky Sports news revealed the fact that Luke McCormick pleaded guilty on the charges filed towards him. The quantity of alcohol present in his bloodstream had been two times the actual permissible drink and drive limit. McCormick confessed of having fallen asleep over the controls that night which led to the horrific crash.
The aftershocks of the incident started when on 22nd July, 2008 Plymouth Argyle terminated Luke McCormickï¿½s contract of goalkeeper within a month from the accident. It was informed to all press people including Sky Sports News that the arrangement had been cancelled upon mutual agreement. He had also been terminated with Plymouth in the beginning of the month and also ended up asked to not attend the actual pre-season training.
Conflict continues to encircle Luke McCormick even now. He created some sort of storm the moment his jail team authorities delivered a request to the South Devon League so that he could perform in the Division Two side. In a report in Sky Sports news it had been observed that a few South Devon League officials were displeased with this particular request as they feel that McCormick should be penalized with regard to his action and not be permitted to spend some time enjoying football.
