Bournemouth charged by FA for breach of Anti-doping regulations


Bournemouth have been charged by the FA over a breach of anti-doping regulations, similar to that of Manchester City recently.

It has been reported that the Cherries face a similar punishment to that of City as well, with the Citizens being handed a £35,000 fine.

The charge is in relation to failing to keep testers updated of all players details and whereabouts.

Failing this three times in one year will result in an automatic fine in which the club will have to pay.

According to the Guardian, one of the incidents relate to an Under-21’s player who was called up to play for the first team.

The club failed to report that he would train at a new location.

The second incident is thought to be the fault of a unnamed player who failed to update his current address having moved house.

Testers turned up to his old house and that was strike number two. It is unknown what the third incident was.
