Luke McCormick, the ex- English goalkeeper was born in Coventry during 1983. The actual beginnings associated with his career bore a strange familiarity to that of a Hollywood movie. Followed closely by Sky Sports news, McCormick started out his job during the 2003- 2004 season as a back up for Romain Larrieu. Improving towards his position, McCormick acquired 7 consecutive clean sheets and went on to create a brand new club record. All the Plymouth Argyle fans also voted him the most promising player of that year. He was consequently dispatched upon loan to Boston United with League Two during October 2004, through Bobby Williamson who was then a Plymouth Argyle manager.
Then he transferred to Leicester City F. C along with Ian Holloway, the previous Plymouth Argyle Manager. His career chart went up steadily and regularly after that and McCormick gave amazing shows in the closing matches in 2007-2008 season.
The cloud settled on his occupation the moment on June 7th, 2008, Luke McCormick was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving while he had been on his way back from a former team mates wedding. The Central Motorway Police Group, which was responsible for arresting McCormick, stated McCormick’s Range Rover collided along with a Toyota Previa resulting in the death of Aaron as well as Ben Peak of age groups 10 as well as 8 respectively.
The actual driver of the car was the children’s father who was seriously hurt and has to be taken to the Hospital Of North Staffordshire. It had been subsequently found that he had sustained multiple fractures on the neck, ribs as well as his back and his lungs were also swollen. The other 3 passengers in the Previa were treated with regard to modest injuries.
He had been charged along with two counts of death brought on by hazardous driving, driving together with alcohol in his blood and also driving without insurance by way of the Staffordshire Police the very following day. On June 9 he had been presented before the Fenton Magistrate Court and was given conditional bail. On June 16 he showed up before the Stroke-on-Trent Crown Court where the charges on driving without an insurance ended up dropped against him. This particular case was ultimately tried during October 2008 while he was sentenced to 7 years and four months in jail period.
Sky Sports news revealed the fact that Luke McCormick pleaded guilty over the charges filed against him. The quantity of alcoholic beverages present in his bloodstream was two times the permissible drink and drive limit. McCormick confessed of having fallen asleep over the wheel that night time that resulted in the horrific crash.
The aftershocks of the event started when on 22nd July, 2008 Plymouth Argyle cancelled Luke McCormickï¿½s contract of goalkeeper in just a month of the accident. It was told to press people including Sky Sports News that the contract had been cancelled upon mutual consent. He had also been terminated with Plymouth at the start of the month and had been asked to not attend the pre-season training.
Conflict continues to surround Luke McCormick even now. He caused a storm the moment his jail team officials delivered a new request to the South Devon League so that he could play in the Division Two side. In a report in Sky Sports news it was noted that some South Devon League officers were definitely displeased with this particular request because they believe that McCormick should be punished for his deed and not be allowed to spend time playing football.
