Hartlepool United and HMP Holme House

Prison inmates are learning how to become football coaches at a Teesside jail.

Holme House prisoners will get the chance to work with a professional coach from Hartlepool United.

Graeme Clark, under 16 coach, is working with the club's Sports Foundation (HUCSF) coach Chris Burton to deliver a two-week, FA Level 1 in football coaching, course for 16 inmates.

Bosses at the Stockton jail say it will help locked-up men integrate back into society after their release.

Two more courses will take place in 2020, which will hopefully see a total of 48 newly qualified coaches, the HUCSF said.
