F.A. takes no action on Portsmouth

last updated Wednesday 10th January 2001, 5:23 PM
Fulham and Portsmouth have escaped disciplinary action from the Football Association following crowd trouble at a Division One game at Craven Cottage.

Both clubs were asked by the FA to submit reports on the match on November 18 where missiles were hurled at Fulham goalkeeper Maik Taylor, a linesman was hit by a snooker ball and the referee had to wear a motor cycle helmet leaving the pitch.

The two sides were facing the prospect of heavy fines from the FA if found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute - but they have been told there will be no action brought against them.

An FA spokesman confirmed: "We have investigated the matter fully and have heard from both clubs, and there will be no further action."
