Newcastle United have been fined £7,500 after admitting breaching rules over their under-18 side wearing kits bearing the logo of a betting company.

The Magpies are sponsored by China-based online gaming firm Fun88.

The Football Association said Newcastle, who were charged last month, were in breach of their kit and advertising regulations.external-link

FA rules say "services and related activities such as alcohol and gambling" cannot be worn by U18 teams.
