Jailed Premiership football star Lee Hughes helped organise a charity match from behind bars which raised £5,000 for a children's hospice.

The former West Bromwich Albion forward, who was locked up for six years in August last year for causing death by dangerous driving, hit the net twice for HMP Featherstone in Sunday's 10-3 victory over an All Star XI featuring several of his ex-team-mates.

Hughes, who also played for Kidderminster and Coventry City, was reported to have laughed and joked his way through the match in the south Staffordshire jail. A prisoner said Hughes set up the match to give something back to the community.

Hughes, then 28 and of Meriden, Warwickshire, was jailed by Coventry Crown Court after being convicted of killing 56-year-old Douglas Graham. Mr Graham was a passenger in a Renault struck by Hughes's Mercedes on the outskirts of Coventry in November 2003.
