Bradford City and Crawley Town fined by FA for post-match brawl

Bradford and Crawley players post-match brawl

The Football Association has fined Bradford City and Crawley Town following the post-match brawl between the two sides on 27 March.

Both clubs were found guilty of a charge of failing to control their players during the League Two match.

The Bantams have been fined £9,000 while Crawley have been handed an £18,000 fine.

Meanwhile, Reds defender Pablo Mills has been found guilty of violent conduct and has received a £1,000 fine.

Mills, who was stripped of the club captaincy for his role in the fracas, has been suspended for a further three matches.

City had accepted the FA charge of failing to ensure that their players and/or officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.

They have been warned about their future conduct.

The brawl saw five players sent off - equalling the British record.

Bradford had Andrew Davies, Luke Oliver and Jon McLaughlin dismissed, while Mills and Claude Davis were sent off for Crawley.

And a third Crawley player, Kyle McFadzean, was later banned for violent conduct on the basis of video evidence.
