FTFC TV - RAY: BOURNE RED CARD "FRUSTRATING"

11 months ago By Brian Flynn

RAY Turner has insisted the red card meted out to centre half Matt Bourne in the 2-1 defeat to Guernsey was unwarranted.

“The frustrating thing is that everyone is telling me it's not even a card.” Ray Turner, Manager
Bourne was given a straight red on 42 minutes for a supposedly dangerous tackle on Craig Young with Town 1-0 down but in the ascendancy and laying siege to the Guernsey goal.
Speaking to FTFC TV in his post-match interview, Ray said: "My initial instinct was that I was disappointed it was a foul, let alone anything else.
"To have two guys just going for the football like they've done, and to have my centre half win the ball cleanly...the frustrating thing is that everyone is telling me it's not even a card let alone a red, and the video evidence apparently does back that up, but that doesn't help us right now."
He praised his team for their effort and performance after making several changes and bringing in new faces.
