The FA has fined Swansea and Hull £20,000 each following the mass confrontation that marred their Premier League clash earlier in December.

Both clubs had admitted a charge of failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion after the incident, which happened in the 80th minute of the Liberty Stadium match on December 9.

The fracas involved Hull's Tom Huddlestone and Yannick Sagbo and Swansea's Ashley Williams, with Chico Flores then flinging himself to the ground and claiming that Sagbo had elbowed him.

The match ended in a 1-1 draw after Danny Graham's opener against his former club was cancelled out by Flores in the 60th minute.

Sagbo and Williams were both booked following an altercation after the incident, while Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey was also shown a yellow card. The game was the first in the Premier League between the two sides.
