1 Brown handed FA fine on Thu Mar 19, 2009 11:31 am

Hull City boss Phil Brown has been fined £2,500 and warned about his future conduct by the Football Association after admitting a charge of improper conduct.

The punishment comes as a result of an altercation with Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear during an FA Cup third-round fixture at St James' Park on 14th January.

Both Brown and Kinnear were sent to the stands on Tyneside by referee Phil Dowd following a touchline row as City won the match 1-0.

The matter was then taken up by the FA's disciplinary department after Brown admitted the charge and requested a personal hearing, but he has escaped a touchline ban.

A statement from the FA read: "At a regulatory commission hearing today, Hull City manager Phil Brown was warned as to future conduct and fined £2,500.

"Brown admitted a charge of improper conduct relating to a touchline confrontation involving himself and Joe Kinnear during an FA Cup match at St James' Park on 14th January."

Kinnear is currently recovering from heart surgery, and as such his hearing will be scheduled for a later date.
