An ex-Plymouth goalie jailed over the deaths of two schoolboys in a drink-drive crash, will play professional football again.
Luke McCormick was handed seven years after hitting a people carrier on the M6 in 2008.
Now it has emerged he has been training with Swindon Town on day release and is set to join the club on a trial basis when he is released next month.
In a statement, bosses say it was a decision not taken lightly: "We thought long and hard about it and it has to be made clear that everybody's thoughts are with the family of the two young boys and the father who was badly injured.
"We have to look at this in a reasonable way and look to produce a positive outcome in horrible circumstances".11:28am 24th May 2012
