BIZZARE! Referee has to rescind RED card after mis-hearing players name!

It is very unheard of for a referee to rescind a red card – but that is just what happened during Hemel Hempstead’s 2-0 victory over East Thurrock United last night.

The referee initially book on-loan Billericay Town star Sanchez Watt for kicking the ball away.

He was then asked 3 times what his name was, replied three times ‘What’. Then he was booked him for dissent, then sent him off.

The captain was called over who explained his name was actually Watt, then reversed the decision.
