Kidderminster Harriers have escaped being docked points but fined £6,000 for fielding an unregisteredplayer.
Relegation-battling Harriers had accepted they had blundered in the paperwork when Portsmouth striker James Keene played against Bristol Rovers and Chester City back in October.
Kidderminster lost both games - the final two matches of Jan Molby's reign - and Keene went on to play a further four matches in his month-long stay in a "work experience" arrangement with Pompey.
A League commission yesterday fined the club £6,000, with a further £6,000 fine suspended for two years.
Harriers chairman Colin Youngjohns said: "We were satisfied we had a fair hearing before the Commission and have accepted their punishment.
"Steps have already been taken to ensure this type of administrative error never happens again."
Meanwhile, Harriers are also in trouble with the Football Association.
Both Kidderminster and Notts County have been charged with failing to ensure that their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion in Harriers' win at Meadow Lane 11 days ago.
