Pardew Receives Seven-Game Ban

Written by Newcastle Utd

Alan Pardew has been handed a three-game stadium and four-game touchline ban by the FA

Newcastle United can confirm that manager Alan Pardew will serve a seven-match suspension with immediate effect after admitting an FA misconduct charge following an incident with a Hull City player in the 72nd minute of the Barclays Premier League fixture on Saturday, 1st March.

An Independent Regulatory Commission today (Tuesday, 11th March) ruled the first three-matches imposed are a stadium ban with the remaining four a touchline ban.

Pardew was also fined £60,000 and warned as to his future conduct.

The Club and Pardew have accepted the decision and now wish to draw a line under the matter.

Pardew commented: "As I have made clear, I deeply regret the incident and again wholeheartedly apologise to all parties for my conduct, which I understand was not acceptable.

"I will accept the punishment handed down by the FA today. My focus now turns to preparing the team for this weekend's game against Fulham and finishing the season as strongly as possible."
