Swansea and Hull fined for mass confrontation

December 19, 2013 10:00 IST

Swansea City and Hull City were fined £20,000 each following a mass confrontation between their players during a Premier League match this month, the Football Association said on Wednesday.

Swansea's Ashley Williams clashed with Hull's Tom Huddlestone and Yannick Sagbo in the closing stages of their 1-1 on December 9, sparking a fracas between both teams' players.

"The clubs each admitted a charge of failing to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion," the FA said in a statement.

Hull, who are 12th in the Premier League, travel to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday and 10th-place Swansea play Everton on Sunday.
