Ball Boy Sent Off
Submitted By: Jeremy Poynton

I was at a game at Aston Gate a couple of years ago, in which one of the BALL BOYS got sent off; I think it was against Notts County, and there was a lot of niggle going on. Anyway, a ballboy started to give one of their players the benefit of his opinions whenever he went near the touchline, and shortly the ref ran over, had a word with the lad, and sent him off.

To my knowledge this is the only case recorded of a ballboy getting a Red card.
