A statistic from last season, Hendon players received a disappointingly high nine red cards, three of which were two yellow cards, one was a professional foul (keeping the score at 1–0 down in the London Senior Cup final) and one was rescinded.

Our opponents received 14, including one manager; four were two yellows and five were professional fouls. Twice – against Wingate & Finchley and Metropolitan Police – were they reduced to nine men, though both were in the dying minutes.

As I said above, our red card count was too high, but the figures suggest we were more sinned against than sinners and five red cards for professional fouls showed that we must have been doing an awful lot of attacking.

Quite often, the two yellows are simply unfortunate, but two of ours included one yellow for something silly. As for the professional fouls, these are frequently desperation challenges that are, if not acceptable, understandable.
