The Football Association has confirmed the introduction of sin bins from Step 5 and below next season.

Sin bins will be used for players who have been shown a yellow card by the referee for dissent, and will see the cautioned player sit out for the next 10 minutes of the game.

The idea has been trialled lower down the football pyramid in 2017/18, and also this season, but 2019/20 will see all leagues from Step 5 and below incorporate sin bins on a matchday.

The Thurlow Nunn League, which covers Steps 5 and 6, and the Anglian Combination League, Cambridgeshire County League and Suffolk and Ipswich League, which all include divisions at Step 7, are all set to be included.
