VIDEO: All of the ball boys at Yeovil Town are sent off in game against Bromley

Referee Aaron Jackson dismisses youngsters for time wasting.


All of Yeovil Town’s ball boys were sent off during a top-of-the-table National League clash with Bromley.

The hosts beat league-leaders Bromley 3-1 at Huish Park on Saturday.

But with the score already decided and around five minutes left on the clock, the Yeovil Town Twitter account reported that one of the club’s ball boys had been sent off.

There then followed an update that all of them had been ordered off the pitch by referee Aaron Jackson.

Time wasting apparently. Wouldn’t return the ball. Yet Bromley wasted time throughout game.

It later emerged that they had been removed from the game because of what the officials perceived as systematic time wasting.

Jackson was apparently forced to begin retrieving the ball for the players instead.

90 | The referee runs to get a ball for Adam Smith (because he's sent the ball boys off…).
