The Premier league club were charged last month for breaking the regulation relating to the accuracy of their 'club whereabouts' information.

Bournemouth have now received the same fine as fellow top-flight side Manchester City, who also fell foul of the rule, and warned over their future conduct.

The FA's statement read: "Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, AFC Bournemouth have been fined £35,000 and warned as to their future conduct after admitting a breach of the FA's Rules on Anti-Doping.

"The club were charged with failing to ensure their 'club whereabouts' information was accurate, contrary to Regulation 14(d)."
