The lad was given abuse by away fans and a player during Chelmsford City’s 3-0 win over Wealdstone in the National League South.
According the home side’s Twitter account, he got in a spot of trouble after giving away fans a taste of their own medicine, after they gave him a hard time.
But the referee decided to give the youngster his marching orders and he was sent down the tunnel.
Chelmsford City tweeted: “It’s an early departure from the ballboy as he is told to remove himself from the touchline.
“He receives rapturous applause as he departs to the terraces.”
Wealdstone confirmed: “Let’s just say he shook his fist at the away supporters.”
Luke Owers, the chairman of Chelmsford City Supporters Club tweeted: “What have I just seen.
“Ball boy receives abuse from a Wealdstone player and supporters.
“Ball boy gives them a hand gesture.
“Ball boy sent off and invited to the referee’s room for a chat after the game. Only in non-league football.”
Owers later confirmed: “He did wait outside the dressing room but the ref didn’t come out until 10.30pm.
