Plymouth Argyle have brought back the keeper who was jailed for causing the deaths of two children in a car crash.

Luke McCormick was twice over the drink-drive limit when it happened in 2008.

The 29 year old has signed a one year deal.

Luke has advised the club that, as part of the deal, he will donate a significant sum of money and give his time to support a local children's charity.

Argyle chairman James Brent said: "Although Luke made a dreadful mistake with unthinkable consequences, he has served his time and is totally remorseful.

"While I respect others who have alternative views, from a moral standpoint, the Board and I think Luke is entitled to rehabilitation.

"John Sheridan wanted to sign him and the club is totally supportive of that."

Luke first appeared for the Pilgrims in the 2003/04 season.

He set a club record of seven consecutive clean sheets when Argyle beat Stockport 2-0 in January 2004, leading him to win the fans' Most Promising Player award.

He and Romain Larrieu jostled for the number one spot for the next four years, with both 'keepers having long spells in goal.
 
Following his release from prison in June 2012, he enjoyed a spell at non-league Truro City.

Luke played 11 times for the White Tigers before sealing a move to League 2 Oxford United until the end of last season.

He made 15 appearances for the Us, including a win against Argyle in February when he kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 defeat for the Pilgrims.
