March of the Wooden Soldiers Tent closes

This means that Colin has had to close his March of the Wooden Soldiers Tent of March in Cambridgeshire.

We wish Colin better health in the future and all Sons are appreciative of his past endeavours. Thanks, Colin.

Hulme rescinded the card when it was explained Watt was not showing dissent.

"It was a human error," Hemel Hempstead chairman Dave Boggins told BBC Sport.

"The referee was man enough to rectify it. I think everybody found it amusing afterwards - including the referee."
