Lynn player/boss Carl Heggs was sent off in tonight's Unibond Premier Division defeat at the Silverlands.

Heggs was dismissed ten minutes after the interval for a second yellow card following an innocuous trip inside the Buxton box on Steve Ridley - one of seven Lynn players cautioned to trigger an automatic fine.
