Blackpool have been fined £50,000 by the Football Association following the pitch invasion which caused their final match of last season against Huddersfield at Bloomfield Road to be abandoned.

The Seasiders' final fixture was halted after 48 minutes when supporters poured on to the pitch in protest at the club's chairman, Karl Oyston.

After a sit-in demonstration in the centre circle that lasted more than an hour, the referee, Mick Russell, called the fixture off.

An FA statement on Thursday said: "The FA charge, which the club denied, was for failing to control spectators resulting in a pitch incursion which caused Blackpool's game against Huddersfield Town to be abandoned."

The League One club were also "severely warned as to future conduct" following an independent regulatory commission hearing.

Blackpool were also ordered to play their first home competitive game of the 2015/16 season behind closed doors, with this sanction suspended for a year.
