Norwich and Sunderland football clubs have been fined for their conduct during their Premier League clash last week and and have been ordered to pay a fine by the English FA. 

"Both Norwich City and Sunderland have been fined £30,000 and warned as to their future conduct for failing to ensure their players and/or officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion," read a statement on the Football Association website.

The fine relates to a fourth minute incident in which a number of players from both sides were involved i a clash in the Sunderland technical area.

Sunderland defender DeAndre Yedlin fell into an advertising hoarding after a collision with Robbie Brady in front of the visiting bench and a heated exchange descended into a skirmish.
