To back up SteveHFC’s observations, I don’t normally make a note of the time of cautions and especially not the offences, but I did on Saturday. Our four were three fouls and one time-wasting: first Alfie Young, 32mins – very poor decision – second Kevin Maclaren, 35mins – probably right, but his reputation goes before him – third Mayo Balogun, 48mins – absolutely correct (and his foul three minutes later may well have merited another one) – and fourth Spencer McCall, 87mins – understandable, except it was an attacking move to let someone else take the throw-in so he could continue the attack. As their half-dozen: the first two were for dissent inside eight minutes (Will Salmon, their skipper, then Nathan Smart), two more for what I can only imagine were the same thing in the last five minutes (Ty Smith and Richard Pacquette), one for shenanigans lining up for a set-piece in our box (Charlie Collins) and one for a foul (I think Rob Bartley). However, there were at least three fouls which were at least as bad as the one which got Mayo booked and all three players were let off with a warning.
