BREAKING: Town In Safe Hands With McCormick

Reds Bring In Vastly Experienced Stopper

7 July 2018

Swindon Town Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Luke McCormick on a free transfer, subject to FA and EFL approval.

The vastly experienced goalkeeper has put pen to paper on a one-year deal at The Energy Check County Ground after leaving Plymouth Argyle.

McCormick has been on trial with the Reds and has been handed a contract for the 2018/19 Sky Bet League Two campaign after impressing Phil Brown.

The 34-year-old becomes the club's third signing of the summer following the arrivals of Jermaine McGlashan and Steven Alzate.

Beginning his career with Plymouth in 2000, the stopper went on to make 138 appearances for the Pilgrims before having spells with Truro City and Oxford United.

He returned to Home Park in 2013 and made a further 168 outings for the club, where he was named Plymouth's captain.

McCormick was named in the PFA 2016-17 League Two Team of the Year and will bring a wealth of experience with him to SN1.

Brought in to provide competition for Lawrence Vigouroux and Will Henry, McCormick was delighted to have put pen to paper and is looking forward to the season ahead. 

"The manager was a huge factor. He spoke ever so well of the club, spoke well of the area, the players and ultimately his plans and which way he wants the football club to go," he told swindontownfc.co.uk.

"I've been here in and amongst it for the last week and everyone has been really welcoming - it is an exciting place to be at.

"I've come from a team that has always been competitive throughout the leagues so, for me, I see Swindon Town as an opportunity to be successful this season and I want to be a part of that.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge ahead and being part of this team moving forward.

"I'm looking forward to a long and successful season."

WE WILL HAVE PLENTY OF REACTION TO THIS SIGNING OVER THE COMING DAYS.
