Newcastle & Norwich fined for scuffle

The sides have been handed fines of £20,000 and £30,000 respectively after failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion in January's 0-0 draw
Norwich City and Newcastle have each been fined for a scuffle between their players in last month's 0-0 draw at Carrow Road.

The Canaries received a fine of £30,000, while Newcastle's amounted to £20,000 after both clubs accepted an FA charge of misconduct on Monday.

The incident in question occurred late in the game as Newcastle striker Loic Remy and Norwich midfielder Bradley Johnson received straight red cards, when the former appeared to move his head towards Johnson in an aggressive manner.

While Johnson had his ban overturned in a subsequent appeal, Remy's ban was upheld, but both clubs have been warned about their future conduct.

A statement from the Football Association read: "Norwich City and Newcastle United have been fined £30,000 and £20,000 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 28 January 2014.

"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."
