How is this not a red card?

You’ll notice the ball is actually in the picture – some two feet or so away from Paul Telfer’s foot that embedded in Perchy.  Whether or not there’s malicious intent from the Cherries player, it is undeniably dangerous play.  Fortunately early indications suggest that Perch hasn’t sustained any overly serious injury as a result of the kick.

In other news, the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy this year puts us in the South East section this year in it’s bid to reduce travelling time for fans, laughable really, isn’t it?  However we have drawn Peterborough at home for the first round of the competition.  Could be quite a challenging fixture, Peterborough are a handy side and favourites for promotion from League Two this year.
