Listen to a podcast from Sporting Heritage featuring staff and ‘John’ from the book.
90 Minutes of Freedom by Jamie Grundy tells the story of HMP Prescoed FC, the only prisoner football team in Wales, during the 2018/19 season. It contains interviews with each of the players who are all serving prisoners. They explain how football is more than just a game. For these men it helps them to adjust to society, assists their anger management and crucially it prepares them for a future away from jail.
With a Foreword by former Wales goalkeeper Neville Southall, 90 Minutes of a Freedom is a unique book on probably the most unique football team in Wales.
Supported by Sporting Heritage and released to coincide with National Sporting Heritage Day 2019, 90 Minutes of Freedom is a rare story of a what it means to be a prisoner footballer.
90 Minutes of Freedom was recently reviewed by Welsh Football magazine.
