NEWTOWN travel to Prestatyn Town on Sunday, just days after both clubs were fined for a melee during their clash at Latham Park last month.

Both clubs were fined £600 with £300 suspended and £50 costs for the ruckus during the Robins 3-0 win on Saturday, January 13.

Newtown comfortably won the match courtesy of goals from Jamie Reed, Alex Fletcher and Joe Kenton.

However the club has now been punished for the first-half flash point.

Newtown have been hit with a further £750 fine with £350 suspended and £50 costs for the failure of its technical staff to conduct themselves in an orderly fashion.

Manager Chris Hughes was also found guilty an alleged act of violent conduct towards an opposition player during the same match and fined £225 plus £50 costs while being banned from the dug out for four games starting from March 5.

The Seasiders have also been hit with a £500 fine for the violent actions of their supporters during their clash with Bala Town in December when a bottle was thrown onto the pitch

The punishment was issued in the week building up to Newtown’s trip to Prestatyn Town on Sunday.

Prestatyn, who have since changed management, are currently bottom of the table and facing a battle for survival under new manager Gareth Wilson who replaced the long serving Neil Gibson last month.

Meanwhile Newtown make the trip on the back of two successive defeats which have severely damaged their bid to end seventh and claim a Europa League play-off place.

A statement issued by Newtown Football Club read: “We have accepted the charges from the Football Association of Wales (FAW) following the match against Prestatyn Town.

“The club now considers the matter closed and won’t be saying anything else with regards to the charges.

“Assistant manager Callum McKenzie and head coach Gavin Cadwallader will be on the touchline for the next four games.”

The Robins make the trip with an unchanged squad from last week’s 2-1 defeat to Barry Town United.
