Blunder referee braced for the axe after FORGETTING to play injury time in Leyton Orient’s chaotic win over Hartlepool

, Blunder referee braced for the axe after FORGETTING to play injury time in Leyton Orient’s chaotic win over Hartlepool

BLUNDER REF Alan Young is braced for the chop after his timekeeping cock-up at Leyton Orient.

Young is due to be working as fourth official at Tuesday’s League One clash between Wycombe and Ipswich Town.

Ref Alan Young blew early for half-time at Brisbane Road

But his FA bosses are planning their response to his calamitous error on Saturday.

The ref failed to add any first-half stoppage time as the Os took on Hartlepool.

He should have allowed four extra minutes but blew for half-time bang on the 45-minute mark.

The teams went in for the customary 15-minute break before coming back out expecting to get on with the second-half.

But Young decided to play out the remaining 4mins and 20secs from the first-half – only then to swap ends and play the next 45 amid chaotic scenes.

At the time Leyton Orient seemed less than impressed with the foul-up.

The club tweeted live during the match: “Ermmmmm…… The referee has bought the teams back out after half-time and now opted to play the four minutes of additional time he ignored.

“And then the teams will switch ends.

“Yeah, us neither.”

SunSport can also reveal that part-time ref Young is also the CEO of Bedfordshire FA – in a further twist to the remarkable story.

Saturday’s League Two game which finished 5-0 in Orient’s favour was also Young’s first of the season. It could also be his last for quite some time.
