Shrewsbury & Chester fined by FA
Shrewsbury and Chester
Shrewsbury and Chester have both been fined 3,000, reprimanded and warned as to their future conduct after a mass brawl between the sides on 25 November.

Both clubs admitted two breaches of Football Association rules.

They were charged with failing to ensure players and officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and refrained from threatening behaviour.

One charge related to an incident in the 58th minute, while the other was for the brawl after the final whistle.

The confrontation was sparked after a disputed penalty was scored in stoppage time, while Shrews defender Sagi Burton was sent off for allegedly striking a Chester player.

The League Two match finished in a 2-1 win for Shrewsbury.

For Chester, it is the second time in a fortnight that they have been punished for failing to control their players - having been fined 1,000 and warned as to their future conduct relating to a game at Barnet in October.
