Sunderland AFC And Newcastle United Accept FA Charge

12 March 2012, 18:07

Both North East Premier League clubs have accepted an FA charge of misconduct following the Tyne Wear derby.

The clubs have requested a hearing to discuss the charge further.

It comes after the derby game at St James' Park on Sunday March 4th.

They were charged with a 'failure to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour'. 

It came from a first-half encounter between Sunderland winger James McClean and Newcastle United full-back Danny Simpson after a foul.

Sunderland had Stephane Sessegnon and Lee Cattermole sent off - Cattermole was shown a red card AFTER the final whistle for using foul and abusive language towards referee Mike Dean.

Both players are serving match bans.
