Middlesbrough hit with fine by FA

26 March 2009 12:28
Middlesbrough have been fined £6,000 by the Football Association for failing to control their players during their 3-0 defeat by West Brom on 17 January. But £2,000 of the fine is suspended until the end of the 2009/10 season. The FA brought the charge against the north-east club for the conduct of their players after referee Mark Halsey dismissed midfielder Didier Digard. An FA statement revealed Boro had admitted the charge at a regulatory commission hearing on Thursday.
