Former Premiership footballer Lee Hughes has been banned from playing for his prison's team for the rest of the season after being sent off in a match.

Hughes, 28, who was given a six-year sentence last August for causing death by dangerous driving, was in action for Featherstone jail near Wolverhampton.
One challenge led to a player going to hospital, a spokesman for opponents Fegg Hayes, from Stoke-on-Trent, said.
The ex-West Bromwich Albion striker was sent off for two bookable offences.
The player who went to hospital needed stitches to his chin, the spokesman added.
Hughes has been in action for Featherstone in the Staffordshire County League since being moved to the jail and scored twice in the 5-2 home victory on Saturday.
Spokesman for the prison, Stuart Bennett, said: "He was sent off for two bookable offences.
"For the first one it was quite a high tackle definitely. For the second one in the second half he didn't stamp on the player but gave the impression that he did.
"Featherstone Prison has a policy of banning all players for the rest of the season if they are sent off.
"But if he remains with us, the slate would be wiped clean ahead of next season."
Hughes was convicted of causing the death of father-of-four Douglas Graham, 56, by dangerous driving and fleeing the scene of the accident near his home in Meriden in November 2003.
Coventry Crown Court heard he had gone to a post-match drinking session before his £100,000 Mercedes sports car smashed into a Renault Scenic.
The striker, who has also played for Coventry City and Kidderminster Harriers, spent most of his career at Albion before having his contract terminated following his conviction.
