Sin Bin trials to start next season in amateur football.

by Jamie Woodhouse

The FA have announced that they will pilot sin bins across step 7 leagues in England from next season.

The system will see players booked for dissent, forced to leave the pitch for ten minutes. The concept will only apply to players booked for dissent, with players shown yellow or red for any other reason not affected.

More than 1,000 clubs received emails over the weekend asking if they were willing to be part of the pilot.

Currently teams are fined £10 if a player is shown a yellow card, but teams taking part in this trial would not be required to pay this fee.

The reaction from fans however has been less than positive with many voicing their frustrations on Twitter.

Stewart Holt believes this scheme will lead to less enjoyable games.

Robert Cook believes the sin bins are being trialled at the wrong level.

William Triffitt believes sin bins will make it much harder for referees at amateur level.
