Dutch to trial ´sin-bin´ plan

The KNVB is introducing a scheme that will see a yellow card in the amateur game punished by a 10-minute spell on the sidelines.

The plans, which are to be brought in next season by the Dutch football body, will see a player removed from the action if they receive a booking and anyone who has been banned will have to show that they have improved their conduct before being allowed to return.

Anton Binnenmars, director of amateur football at the KNVB, said the manslaughter of linesman Richard Nieuwenhuizen at the hands of three players at a local match late last year was the catalyst for the measures.

“After the sad events on December 2, it became clear for the football world and the society in general that we needed to do something,” Binnenmars said.

“We have to take stronger measures. Violence does not belong on the pitch.”
