Today’s ‘Knowledge’ article on theguardian.com asks the question ‘What is the fastest that a football team has been reduced to nine players?’ after Leyton Orient were reduced to 10 men after 21 seconds, and nine after 14 minutes in a 2-0 defeat at home to Plymouth Argyle.
Brighton & Hove Albion appear to have that beaten that when Romain Vincelot and Ashley Barnes (famous for having once played against Bracknell Town) were dismissed after 12 minutes against Burnley in 2011.
We’d like to know of any local examples from you – dear FootballinBracknell reader of either:
- The earliest sending off you’ve seen in the wider Bracknell area.
- OR the earliest your side has been reduced to 9 men.
Let us know in the comments below, via email, on our twitter page here or on our facebook page.
And here’s those early sendings off for Leyton Orient..
