Personally I think you can't tell from the footage. What you actually see looks innocuous but you don't see what led up to it and you don't see the extent to which he went to stamp on the bloke which was presumably the reason for the straight red.

Short YouTube clips can be misleading.

Just trod on the bloke by mistake. Not a stamp, not a lunge, just a simple mistake and a yellow card not a red. Spoiled what promised to be a good game but that's what can happen if you put a team of kids in charge of a game like that.

Looks very harsh to me. Just chased the ball a bit too hard after losing it. 'A forward's tackle.' I've read other comments about the referee being young and inexperienced. A game like that should have a Football league referee, or at the very least a senior man with experience at a higher level. Young refs often seem to give impetuous decisions like that; I get the feeling they think they can progress more quickly if they're seen as proactive and decisive instead of giving people the benefit of the doubt.

Why is the Hendon keeper wearing a green shirt again? Alright, it's a slightly ighter shade than the rest of their kit, but not by much. Even if Hendon are wearing their away kit they're likely to be playing against opponents in green. Of all the colours available for a goalkeeper's shirt why on earth did someone at Hendon order a green one?

I'm not entirely sure, but I don't think we did - our kit tends to be based on whatever Adidas have an excess of each summer in their warehouse in Germany. The only guarantee is that we get a Green home kit - although we request designs and keeper/away colours we don't always get what we asked for, reason being that we don't tend to have to pay for the first team strips thanks to a sponsorship deal.

Red card

overturned on the FE video footage. So after 14 minutes Hendon are down to 10 men because of a shocker of a decision. I know that can happen many times during the season but this would be a tough one to take. Poor ref

There seem to be far fewer red cards shown for serious foul play at our level than in the Premier League. I only recall seeing two last season: Shawn McCoulsky at Hornchurch, which looked totally innocuous and barely even worth a free kick or even a yellow card; and the Hendon bloke at Earlsmead, of which I didn't have a great view, although nobody really seemed to argue about it. The worst single foul I saw was the Harrow player on Dean Lodge on the first day of the season, and he only got a yellow. That was a shocker, a spiteful and nasty lunge throught the back of the legs on a dangerous opponent accelerating away, no chance whatsoever of winning the ball cleanly. I felt that was a clear red card offence as soon as it happened and before realising the extent of the injury. Lodge had to go off and was out for four months as a result. (And then suffered a fractured collarbone in a friendly and hasn't played again since.)

The fact that it came so early in the play off final makes it seem worse but shouldn't be a factor, it's just unfortunate. It simply wasn't that bad a foul in the first place. If the ref had just shown a yellow I don't think any reasonable person would have been moaning that it should have been more.

Your second paragraph gets to the crux of it really. To be honest, there've been worse decisions made this season, but this referee was unfortunate that he did it in probably the biggest game he's had all season. On the flip side of what you say about a yellow probably being right, I honestly don't think anyone would have been moaning too much if Ryan Moss had just gone for his relatively similar challenge moments beforehand either - at least the ref would have had been able to say he'd been fairly consistent about his application of the laws - although of course Aaron may not have made that challenge in that scenario.

It's obviously frustrating from our point of view that it made what was already looking like a tough job (Margate shading what I saw of the early exchanges) near impossible and it took away a number of options for us, but unfortunately that's the way football works at time. The only thing that's really soured the experience for me is Margate failing to acknowledge they called it horribly wrong, even after both their own and the footballexclusives video footage showed no "terrible stamp". They owe Aaron an apology for that.
