Swindon Town interim chairman: 'Luke will be training with the team'

A goalkeeper who killed two young brothers while he was drink-driving has been offered an opportunity to train with Swindon Town football club.

The club's interim chairman, Jeremy Wray, said Luke McCormick had been coming to the club on day-release since January and that once he is freed he will be training with the team but nothing more.

He said: "There is absolutely nothing more at this stage. People are getting ahead of themselves."

He added: "Luke is very contrite and full of remorse. He wants to give something back."
