Referee Aaron Johnson let the power of running a football match go to his head during Yeovil Town vs. Bromley.

He inexplicably sent off every Yeovil ball boy in their Conference Premier fixture against Bromley on Saturday.

Johnson deemed the ball boys too slow as they handed the ball back to Bromley players.

In the 84th minute, when Yeovil were leading 3-1, the referee sent off one of their ball boys. A minute later, he subsequently sent them all off after consulting with a steward in a bizarre incident.

The West Country club took to social media to express their dismay and confusion at the mass sending offs.

"84 ' The referee has, no joke, just sent off one of our ball boys," the club posted, before providing an update on the situation.

"85 ' Update: he's dismissed all of them," they wrote on Twitter.

Needless to say, Johnson removing Yeovil's ball boys from the match got fans talking online:

Yeovil went onto win the game 3-1 thanks to goals from Adam Smith, an own-goal from Marc-Anthony Okoye and Charlie Lee.
