Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An extraordinary book. Buy it, read it, treasure it" Sunday Times "Porridge meets Escape to Victory. A witty, moving and wholly original read" Daily Mirror Zebedee, Teddy, Bunny, Nigel, Scouse, Raph, Bumpy, Wayne, Carl, Paddy and Rizler. Eleven men - a football team. This team has the usual sprinkling of talent, but is otherwise unique. Nine of these players have been convicted of murder and are serving life-sentences in HMP Kingston, the other two, their warders. Chris Hulme spent the 1997-98 season with the Kingston Arrows - watching every game, talking to them about their lives on the inside and out and supporting them in their attempt to win the league for the first time in ten years of trying. His resulting account of an ordinary game played by extraordinary men whose lives have been transformed by one horrific act of violence is both moving and remarkable. "One of the books of the summer" Evening Standard"Electrifying a riveting account of what football can mean when you, quite literally have nothing else to live for" Pete Davies"A moving, enthralling and extraordinary book" Maxim
