  Fastest-red card-world record set by David Pratt
  LONDON, UK -- David Pratt, 21, a striker from non-league Chippenham, was sent off by referee Justin Amey, for a dangerous tackle three seconds after kickoff-setting the new world record for the  Fastest-red card in senior soccer.
   Photo:The 21-year-old Chippenham striker was dismissed for a wild tackle on Chris Knowles, 22, who then helped Bashley to a 2-1 win in the British Gas Southern Premier League game.
Pratt, a plumber from Swindon, believes he did not deserve to be sent off. He told BBC: I felt hard done-to by the refs decision but he thinks it was a red card so I have to take it. The world record for the  Fastest-red card is not a big deal for me; its not something that Im proud of.

Chippenham striker Pratt, 21, launched a two-footed lunge at Bashley forward Christopher Knowles, 22, direct from kick-off in their British Gas Premier Division game.

   Referee Justin Comley immediately showed Pratt a red card to the amazement of the 500 supporters at Bashley's New Forest ground.

   Bashley manager Steve Riley said: 'It was unbelievable. I have never seen anything like it to be honest.

   'Nobody said anything, none of the players protested and the referee had no choice really but to send him off. It was a potential leg breaker. 'It is not something you like to see on a football pitch but it happens and I think the ref did a good job.'

  Fortunately Knowles was able to continue as Bashley went on to win the game 2-1.

  Bashley won the British Gas Southern Premier League game but Pratt, a plumber in his day job, insisted the sending off was harsh. "I felt hard done-to by the ref's decision but he thinks it was a red card so I have to take it," he said.

    The previousworld record for the  Fastest-red card was set by Bologna's Giuseppe Lorenzo who was sent off after 10 seconds into an Italian league game in 1990 against Parma for striking an opponent.
