Mon, Sep 3, 2012, 01:00

Soccer:Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has been given a two-match touchline ban and fined £20,000 (€25,282) after accepting an English FA charge of improper conduct.

The FA today confirmed that following an Independent Regulatory Commission meeting, Pardew had been charged following an incident during his side’s match against Tottenham on August 18th. Pardew was sent off during the 2-1 win after he pushed linesman Peter Kirkup after claiming the ball had gone out of play during a Spurs attack.

The suspension will take place with immediate effect meaning the Magpies boss will be forced to sit in the stands during the forthcoming Barclays Premier League games against Everton and Norwich.
