Bournemouth have been fined by the Football Association after admitting a breach of doping rules.

The club were charged with failing to ensure they kept accurate information of their "club whereabouts" - essentially, where players are on a daily basis.

They must pay £35,000 which is the same amount Manchester City were fined last month for the same offence. 

In a statement on the Bournemouth club website, the club said: "The club were charged under Regulation 14(d) of the FA's rules.

"Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, AFC Bournemouth have been fined £35,000 and warned as to their future conduct after admitting a breach of The FA's rules on anti-doping.

"The club were charged with failing to ensure their 'Club Whereabouts' information was accurate, contrary to Regulation 14(d)."
