Two yellows and subbed

I can recall only one Hendon player who has escaped a red after receiving two yellows (Kevin nearly did so against Sutton at Wembley late in the 2008–09 season, but the Sutton fans persuaded the referee and his assistant to get it right before play could resume).

In this other incident, our bench knew immediately what had happened and substituted him, within seconds of the second caution. As I couldn’t believe what I had seen, I spoke with the player after the game and he admitted that he was about to walk off, but then realised the referee wasn’t feeling in his pocket for a second card (it turned out that the referee had written 12 – who had been on the pitch a matter of seconds – instead of 2 for that second booking).

By the way, you can trawl through all the reports to find the player and match in question, but it was agreed that to protect the guilty, none of the card incidents would be mentioned.
