SIN BIN (Temporary Dismissals)
From the 2019-20 season, temporary dismissals also known as 'sin bins' will
be introduced across all levels of grassroots football. Players dissent
will result in 8/10-minute temporary dismissals (dependent on the duration
of the match) from the pitch.
The mandatory rule change will be implemented up to Step 5 of the National
League System and Tier 3 and below in women's football. Sin bins of 8/10
minutes will be issued at the discretion of referees as punishment for
dissent, and will apply to all levels of grassroots football, including
youth, veterans, and disability.
The FA have updated their website with some really useful information
regarding sin bins and the match day process which will need to be
followed. Please find the link to their webpage below. This link provides
you with access to Sin Bin FAQ’s, videos and infographics which will help
players, clubs officials and referees to understand the process in more
The link below also takes you to an online guide to Sin Bins. Whether you
are a player, club official or a match official, we hope that you find this
Please note that sin bin training is mandatory for your league, clubs and
referee’s this season. For those who have not yet held a training meeting
including the attendance by London FA, please do get in touch at the
earliest opportunity. We will not be able to sanction your league without
this training requirement having been met.
REFEREE LEAGUE MEETING
Referees Registered to the SelKent League are expected to attend the
seasonal Referee Meeting. This is because we believe it is important
that the Team Manager and Match Official are both aware of the SelKent
League Match Procedures.
