Gillingham Manager Peter Taylor has accepted a £1,000 fine from the FA

Manager Peter Taylor yesterday accepted a fine from the Football Association following a breach of FA Rule E3, incurring a standard £1,000 penalty for misconduct.

The Manager was sent to the stands just before half time during the club's League One fixture against Scunthorpe after throwing an empty water bottle to the floor in the dugout which made its way onto the pitch.

He said: "I apologise for throwing the empty bottle, I shouldn't have done it but I accept the fine and I'll take it on the chin."
