SYNOPSIS

Danny Meehan (Vinnie Jones) had it all – captain of the England soccer team, fast cars, money and fame; until he was sacked following accusations of match fixing an England v. Germany match and jailed for three-years for drunken assault on a police officer. On arrival at prison his troubles are far from over. The Governor (David Hemmings) has pulled strings to get Danny assigned to his prison.

He’s put a lot of money into the prison guards’ semi-professional soccer team with little result, and wants Danny to train the team to win the league. Siding with the Governor is a one way ticket to prison hell, and so Danny proposes to train a team of cons to play against the guards as a pre-season warm-up.

The Governor agrees, believing a bunch of cons to be no match for his guards. From this point on prepare to laugh and have fun as Danny takes on a tougher role than Sven Goran Ericson, coaching a team of unfit, unreliable and unpredictable villains to play against the guards.
