yellow card


<img src="
I recently reffed a junior game, U14, which was a local side vs a touring side from the NE. In a bad tempered game I yellow carded a blue player for kicking a red player( could have been a red one I know) Immediatly 2 coaches ran on and asked(demanded) that I allow a player on as sub for the carded player as it was a tour game and did not matter, I said no and asked them to leave the field. I then had 20mins of stick from parents and coaches alike. If I had allowed the player sub I felt I would have been condoning foul play, was right?? Andy
