CHERRIES have been fined £15,000 by the FA for their part in the clash between both sets of players when they visited Millwall last week.

Both clubs were charged by the FA after it was alleged they failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion in the 26th minute of the 1-1 draw.

The flashpoint occurred after Gavin Kilkenny went over in the penalty area, despite seemingly minimal or no contact from Millwall man Mason Bennett.

Kilkenny had just two minutes earlier been booked for dragging back Danny McNamara, with some Lions players appealing for a second yellow for the young Irishman after he went to ground in the box.

After players from both sides came to blows, no further punishment was handed out by referee Dean Whitestone.

But now both clubs have been hit with the charge and fines, with Millwall's less than that handed out to Cherries.

A statement today from the FA read: "Millwall FC and AFC Bournemouth have been fined £5,000 and £15,000 respectively following their EFL Championship match on Wednesday 24 November 2021 for breaching FA Rule E20.1.

"Millwall FC admitted a charge from The FA and accepted the standard penalty. AFC Bournemouth admitted a non-standard charge and requested a paper hearing where its fine was imposed by an independent Regulatory Commission."
