Seven-match ban for Pardew

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has been given a seven-match ban - and will be barred from entering stadiums for the first three games - after headbutting Hull midfielder David Meyler.

The sanction was imposed by an independent regulatory commission after Pardew had admitted a misconduct charge, the Football Association announced.

He was also fined £60,000 and warned as to his future conduct after the incident during Newcastle's 4-1 win at Hull on March 1.

A statement from the FA read: "Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew will serve a seven-match suspension with immediate effect, subject to any appeal, after he admitted an FA misconduct charge.

"An independent regulatory commission today [Tuesday 11 March 2014] ruled the first three matches imposed are a stadium ban with the remaining four a touchline ban."
