A REF sent off six players following a row over players wearing the wrong coloured underwear.

The match official ordered two members of the Bath City youth team to change as their undershorts didn’t match their shorts.

Opponents Newport County scored twice while the pair were in the changing room resulting in an argument which saw one Bath player, a substitute and the manager sent off.

Simmering bad feeling throughout the match saw a further three players sent off.

The side ended up losing 6-0.

Bath chairman Manda Rigby said: “It was farcical.”
