‘No joke’: Yeovil ball boys sent off, leaving referee to do their job

Yeovil Town’s ball boys were all sent off in the closing minutes of Saturday’s 3-1 lower-league win over Bromley, leaving the referee to retrieve the ball himself, as the bemused club and fans took to social media to discuss the bizarre end to the game.

“The referee has, no joke, just sent off one of our ball boys…” said Yeovil in a Twitter post, before adding: “Update: he’s dismissed all of them.”

Local media said referee Aaron Johnson had sent off one boy for not returning the ball to a Bromley player fast enough late in the National League (fifth-tier) match at Yeovil’s Huish Park.

The other boys followed soon after, leaving no one to return the ball for the final minutes of the game, with Yeovil tweeting that Johnson himself had then been obliged to run to retrieve a ball.
