Mother's anger over McCormick's Swindon move

The mother of two children who were killed in a car crash caused by footballer Luke McCormick said it was "like being hit in the stomach" when she heard the goalkeeper would be joining Swindon Town this summer.

It never seems to stop. The minute we think we are getting back on track, we are told something like this. It’s like being hit in the stomach. One of McCormick’s main points in his plea was that he will never play football again - that was obviously completely wrong.

My sons loved playing football and played every day. My husband can’t even kick a ball now either, he struggles to walk. And McCormick’s been playing since January. He was meant to be on day-release doing things to put good back into the community to repay for what he has taken from us. But he is off playing football.
