PDFL round-up: Red mist descends as Long Sutton win stormy Tydd cup clash

Six red cards were shown as Long Sutton Athletic beat fierce rivals Tydd 3-1 in a stormy Peterborough Senior Cup quarter-final at London Road on Saturday.

Goals from Matt Eaton (42), Chris Ward (64) and Jimmy Ward (84) sent Sutton through to the semis, with Jordan Clow (48) getting the Tydd reply.

However, Clow (58) was sent off for Tydd, while team-mate Louie Rees and Sutton’s Callum Davies were both dismissed in the final minute.

Three people were also red carded by top official James Truman as they entered the field in what was an unsavoury finale.
