Former Newcastle midfielder Lee Bowyer has been fined £600 and ordered to pay £1,000 costs.

The 29-year-old, now with West Ham, pleaded guilty at Newcastle magistrates court to using threatening behaviour after he was involved in an on-field brawl at St James’ Park with Kieron Dyer in April 2005.

The courts felt he has suffered enough with a heavy fine and ban by both Newcastle United and the FA so the fine was rather low.
