FOOTBALL: Hinksey boss McMahon and three players see red

AFC Hinksey had three players sent off and their manager, Kevin McMahon, shown a red card as they crashed to a 1-0 defeat against Division 1 East title rivals Milton United at Abingdon Town.
In the first game to be played at Culham Road this year after the ground was badly hit by floods, Tom Austin, signed in midweek from Wantage Town, slotted home his spot-kick to send Milton top after Stevie Haines was sent off for bringing down Harry Dalton.
Keiran Davis and Denel Thomas then also got their marching orders after picking up two yellows cards each, and McMahon was red-carded at the end for foul and abusive language to referee Craig Boyles.
It completed another day of shame for Hinksey, coming just two weeks after their match at Chinnor was abandoned after 27 minutes following an altercation between one of their players and referee Ian Lowe.
Hinksey had already had two players sent off by that stage, and an Oxfordshire FA investigation is ongoing.
