Lancashire: No more red cards

Lancashire: No more red cards

Oliver Lancashire has vowed not to continue his poor disciplinary record that has blighted his short career so far.

The 21 year old has already notched up four red cards in 45 appearances, but he insists they have been down to poor judgement or bad luck.

His first came on his debut for Southampton, which was made worse by being live on Sky TV. In another, he was sent marching after getting the Man of the Match accolade against Sheffield United.

Of the latter red card, he told the Express and Star: 'I was the last man and got sent off, but people who talk about the red card don`t talk about the Man of the Match award which is quite annoying.'

Another was a handball, while on loan at Grimsby, which he insists hit his chest and not his hand or arm, and the final one got rescinded.

He continued: '"I definitely wouldn`t say I`m a dirty player, it`s just the way it`s gone... things didn`t seem to be going for me last year, but this time I want to keep the cards away."

Lancashire's frustrating time last season was not made any more rosy, as loan club Grimsby fell out of league football.

However, he resolves that poor fortunes at Blundell Park has made him a better player.

He concluded: '"It added another side to my game. Compared to playing reserve team football where nothing really matters I was suddenly involved in a relegation battle - going there I had to scrap.'

Only time will tell if he has put his poor fortunes behind him. Got something to add? Let us know in the forum!
