Early Red Card

In other news, Orient managed to have a player sent off after 23 seconds against leaders Plymouth last night and were down to 9 after 15 mins. A little too keen to impress their new interim manager, Hessenthaler having been sacked earlier that week?

Surprisingly perhaps not the earliest ever red - earliest in professional football was 13 seconds - Kevin Pressman for Sheff Wed. Thought to be the earliest in English football at any level was 2 seconds - for the heinous crime of shouting "f*ck me that was loud" when the ref blew his whistle.
