Video referees: FA wants to use technology in next season's FA Cup

The Football Association wants to test a video assistant referee system from the third round of next season's FA Cup.

The Wembley meeting also approved the proposals for sin-bins for yellow-card offences and rolling substitutions at lower levels of football from June.
