A temporary dismissal system - or a sin bin - is to be introduced to football in a bid to crack down on dissent.

The English FA, through consultation with IFAB, the governing body for the laws of the game, have adopted the system for certain yellow card offences.

The opportunity to act as Pilot League for “Sin Bins” was offered to all leagues across the country at Step 7 and below in the football pyramid.

In Cornwall the Trelawny League and the Duchy League registered an interest and following a meeting with the FA giving more detail, they both agreed they wanted to act as a Pilot League.

This is something Cornwall FA fully supports and for consistency across that level of the game, the Junior Cup will also be used in the Pilot.

There is now a need for Cornwall FA and the leagues to deliver training, with the support of The FA, to all clubs, referees and players and make sure as many people as possible are up to speed with the new regulations and Laws around Sin Bins

To this end there will be four presentations delivered by Governance Manager Richard Pallot, who will be supported by the respective leagues.

There are also 10 video conferences being hosted by the FA which can be viewed from any laptop or computer and anyone is welcome to join.

Anyone with any questions can email or call Richard Pallot at Cornwall FA on 01208 262989 or richard.pallot@cornwallfa.com
