AFC Wimbledon sign Chelsea midfielder Luke McCormick


AFC Wimbledon have signed Chelsea midfielder Luke McCormick.

It will be the Academy midfielder's third season in League One following recent loan spells at Shrewsbury Town and Bristol Rovers.

The 22-year-old has been with Chelsea since Under-9s level, progressing through the ranks at Cobham in the same team as Mason Mount and Trevoh Chalobah.

A striker and wideman in the younger age groups, McCormick eventually settled into a central midfield role when he became a scholar, quickly developing both his leadership skills and goalscoring ability from deep.

James Simmonds, Under-18s assistant coach, is to spend part of the 2021/22 season on secondment at AFC Wimbledon. Working closely with first team head coach Mark Robinson, Simmonds will help to strengthen the relationship between our Academy and the League One club, while also developing his own skillset in a senior football environment
