Norwich City have been fined £30,000 by the FA for their part in a melee that marred the recent Premier League 0-0 draw against Newcastle United which saw both sides have a man sent off.

The Canaries had denied the FA charge of ‘failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour’ but were subsequently found guilty. Newcastle had accepted the FA’s original charge and were fined £20,000 which related to a late flashpoint involving players from both sides in last month’s Carrow Road game triggered by the dismissals of Loic Remy and Norwich midfielder Bradley Johnson.

The FA released a statement on Friday afternoon which 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 January 28 2014.

“Newcastle admitted the charge and accepted the standard penalty of £20,000, which includes a third-off for admitting (the offence). 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.”

City were fined £20,000 by the FA earlier in the season following a similar incident against Cardiff City at Carrow Road. The latest episode was sparked by Newcastle striker Remy’s dismissal for a head butt gesture towards Johnson, before the City midfielder was also sent off for raising his hands into the chest of the Frenchman. Johnson successfully appealed against his three-match ban but Remy is currently serving a three-game suspension for violent conduct after failing in his appeal.

  • Well of course Newcastle didn`t appeal, they were the cause and effect of this stupid spat. The FA are redundent and a bunch of no hopers and none doer`s. They are the Neanderthals of the football world. They need to do something about the refferees, officials, who need a lot of help from the sidelines and technology. The consequences to those on the end of their hopeless regime, are the big losers.

  • If they'd made it £300 m, we could have filed for bankruptcy, and then we would only have to put up with Hughton till the end of the season, what a lost opportunity

  • Pea nuts!! We are paying far more than that on wages for players that were not even there and have no likelihood of playing as they are not good enough but still feel they are Champion League standard - oh sorry so did some of the fans earlier in the season.

  • If the fine was because the club failed to ensure the players refrained from provocative behaviour why has this fine not been imposed in respect of all their performances this season.

  • Just take it out of Hughton`s wages. After all, it`s only a week`s worth. Crazy world.
