'What's your name?'- Referee error sees player sent off over surname blunder

Watt's my name? Ex Arsenal player sent off after ref's hilarious blunder over surname

The Englishman spent 15 years in north London, 11 of which with the academy, but never made the cut as a senior player.

Watt has also played for Kerala Blasters in India, along with Crawley and Billericay Town.

That was the case last night in English non-league football when Hemel Hempstead Town player Sanchez Watt saw red in the National League South game against East Thurrock United.

You see, Hulme thought Watt was saying "what", and when he came back asking his name again, and again, the cycle kept repeating.

The ref didn't hesitate and quickly upgraded his yellow card to a red for dissent, but thankfully Hemel captain Jordan Parkes was nearby and he soon explained what had happened to the embarrassed referee, according to the Evening Standard.

Hemel Hemstead went on to win their game 2-0 against East Thurrock with Watt on the scoresheet too!

Hemel tweeted: "Red card: Sanchez Watt is sent off, presumably for dissent". But that is when a controversy began that even VAR could not have cleared up.

However, the colour of the card changed to yellow. A rather weird incident all stemming from the decision to award Thurrock a goal kick despite a clear touch from a defender before the ball went out.
