MANSLAUGHTER UNITED by Chris Hulme; Yellow Jersey, paperback, pounds 10.00
AN ACCOUNT of the year Chris Hulme spent with the Kingston Arrows, a prison football team. Like all amateur football teams, they had the usual sprinkling of talent; what made them unique was that nine of the players were convicted murderers serving life sentences and the other two were warders. They play in a local league (home games only). Hulme talked to them about their lives inside and out, while supporting them in their attempt to win the league for the first time in 10 years of trying. It's an uncompromising account of an ordinary game played by extraordinary men - a remarkable story indeed.
