The club fired 29-year-old McCormick in 2008 after he admitted causing the death of two children - Aaron Peak, aged ten and eight-year-old Ben Peak - in a car crash and driving with excess alcohol.

The brothers, from Greater Manchester, died in the crash on the M6 in Staffordshire.

McCormick was sentenced to seven years and four months in jail, but served half that term.

Earlier this month he was released by League Two club Oxford United.
