Luke McCormick signs for Truro City

A goalkeeper jailed after killing two young boys while drink driving will play his first professional football match since his release.

Luke McCormick, who played for Plymouth Argyle before he was jailed, will take to the field for Truro City today (Sat) for their game against Farnborough.

McCormick was sentenced to seven years in 2008 after his Range Rover collided with a car on the M6. Two of its passengers, 10 year-old Aaron Peak and his 8 year-old brother Ben, were killed. Their father Phil Peak suffered such severe injuries he's unlikely to recover fully.

Earlier this year it emerged McCormick had been training with Swindon Town while on day release from Leyhill Prison in South Gloucestershire.
