Back in the league that uses sin bins tomorrow (only second time)

Dissent that sees a player sent to the sin bin and hes shown a yellow card, is the yellow card just a way of showing people that someone has been sent to the bin or is it an official caution ?

All brand new to me this so unsure, i thought the sin bin was like a warning spend eight minutes but next time il caution you.

Show the yellow and point to the sideline. You’ll still need to report it on the whole game system as a c2 (sin bin) caution

So the sin bin for minor dissent shall we say is a warning before a yellow (even though a yellow is shown)

Im on it now, the yellow to the bin isnt actually an official caution.

I get that James, so if someone goes in the bin for dissent then comes back onto play and commits say reckless yellow card offence, is he sent off ?

No.
If he commits a second dissent offence he is sin binned and may be replaced by a named substitute at the end of dismissal period. Depending on if the team has subs available to make left.

Its quite tricky but once you get the hang of it it will click.

@one had a good little printable table iirc.

Have you had official training from the FA? I’m based in somerset and you aren’t allowed to referee in a league using the sin bin if you haven’t attended the training

Not heard of anyone having training that i know, its just here is a guide and get on with it.

Was in the league today that has the sin bin but four well behaved teams so not called upon.
