Newcastle United have been fined by the FA following a charge of misconduct
Newcastle United and Norwich City have been fined £20,000 and £30,000 respectively following an FA charge of misconduct.
The charge was that both clubs failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour in or around the 82nd minute of their fixture on Tuesday, 28th January.
Newcastle admitted the charge and accepted the standard penalty of £20,000, which includes a third-off for admitting.
Norwich, who had a similar breach earlier this season, denied the charge which was subsequently found proven and were fined £30,000.
Both clubs were warned as to their future conduct.
