Football Association to Begin Sin Bin Trials in Lower Leagues

The Football Association has confirmed that they will be trialling sin bins in the lower leagues of English football from the start of next season.
The Football Association has confirmed that they will be trialling sin bins in the lower leagues of English football from the start of next season.

The FA confirmed that over one-thousand clubs have been contacted and asked whether they would consider being part of the trial, which will not be compulsory as every league and club can decide to use sin bins at their own discretion.

An FA spokesman confirmed that the reaction from clubs has been a positive one with over sixty already coming out in support of the trial.

From next season, England's Step 7 League - those that are six tiers beneath the National League - along with male and female Sunday league youth football will be allowed to introduce sin bins if they wish.

The sin bin will only apply to yellow cards shown for dissent and will see players leave the field of play for ten minutes.

Clubs are usually charged a £10 fine for each yellow card they collect but the FA will not be charging this administration fee for those that participate in the trial.
