"Watt." "What?" "Watt!" A player has been sent off after a referee mistook his name for dissent.

Referee Dean Hulme asked Sanchez Watt, who was playing for Hemel Hempstead Town, for his name as he was about to be booked in a National League South game against East Thurrock United.

The 27-year-old repeatedly replied: "Watt" but Hulme believed he was saying "what?" and sent him off for dissent.

Hulme rescinded the card when it was explained Watt was not showing dissent.

"It was a human error," Hemel Hempstead chairman Dave Boggins told BBC Sport.

"The referee was man enough to rectify it.

"I think everybody found it amusing afterwards - including the referee.
