Paul Ince, Blackpool Manager, Receives Five-Match Stadium Ban

Blackpool manager Paul Ince has received a five-match stadium ban and £4,000 fine following an incident after his side's Championship match at Bournemouth on 14 September 14.

The Football Association confirmed an independent regulatory commission hearing found the former England midfielder guilty of "using abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official, of behaviour towards a match official which constituted violent conduct and of using threatening words and/or behaviour towards a match official."

The match, which was refereed by Oliver Langford, ended in a 2-1 win for the Tangerines. Ince had been sent to the stands late on in the match for throwing a bottle which struck a supporter, an incident for which his assistant Alex Rae said on the day he had apologised for.
