25 June 2013

Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Fleetwood Town’s Gerard Kinsella has been suspended from football and all football activities for two years, subject to any appeal, after he admitted an FA charge in relation to a breach of its Anti-Doping regulations.

Kinsella was charged under FA Rule E25 for a breach of Regulation 3 after he gave a sample following an out of competition test which contained the presence of a prohibited substance, namely Nandrolone, listed as an Anabolic Androgenic Steroid in the 2013 Prohibited List of the World Anti-Doping Code.

The player, who requested a personal hearing, will serve a 24-month suspension commencing 5February 2013 (backdated to the date of sample collection) until 4 February 2015 [inclusive].
