Another large amount of entries, not all of them correct by any means....

The Answer to; Question - The ball is in play inside the penalty area when a defender spits at an opponent near the penalty mark. What is the colour of the card and how is the game restarted?

A - Yellow and indirect free kick
B - Red and indirect free kick
C - Yellow and penalty kick
D - Red and penalty kick

D - Red and penalty kick. Spitting was introduced into the laws as a direct free kick in 1995, so direct free kick. As it's in the defenders own penalty area it becomes a sending off and penalty kick.

The Winner is Darren Padley, with Runner up prizes going to Martin Burrell and Gareth Elliott... I shall be in contact with you to arrange delivery of prizes and the trip for Darren..

New competition coming soon...
