West Ham charged by FA over anti doping regs

West Ham have been charged by the Football Association in relation to anti-doping regulations.

It is alleged the club failed to ensure ‘club whereabouts’ information was accurate on three occasions within 12 months,” the FA said today.

The Hammers have until 27 February to respond to the charge.

A statement on the club website read:

West Ham United have been notified of a Football Association charge in relation to The FA’s Rules on Anti-Doping, specifically Regulation 14(d).

It is alleged the Club failed to ensure its ‘Club Whereabouts’ information was accurate on three occasions within 12 months.

West Ham have until 27 February 2018 to respond to the charge.

A West Ham United spokesman said: “The breach relates to administrative oversights on The FA’s whereabouts system, for example a player’s address had been registered and the house number digits transposed, and the Club will be responding to The FA in due course. We would like to make it clear that the breach is a Club administrative matter and does not concern any of our players.”

  1. Surpose the owner’s of west ham thought they didn’t have to pay for the information they had to provide and the owner’s of the stadium were covering that cost too??😁😁😁😁

  2. Just another thing to add to the so called directors/chairpersons—- Just exactly do you guys do all week ….. because it isn’t working …smfdh….my thoughts were that persons were allocated certain tasks ..I. e . Making sure that the players give their whereabouts at all times…..it’s just one calamity after another….looks like we’re in a rowing boat going round in circles……..Rodders and del boy and lady what’s her name..!! What a carry on except there’s no Side James…plus it ain’t too funny

  3. This is a non story happens all the time, it is stupid anyway that the club are responsible these guys are professional athletes the accountability should be with the players.

    • From what I read it is both the players and clubs responsibility,they both have the update information on whereabouts schedules etc

  4. Normally its Rachelle blood but she’s commonly known by Nigel’s waynetta slob 😂😂 wot wot 😜

  5. Ask Rio

  6. Embarrassing to say the least. Another 35k wasted.ffs

  7. “Club Whereabouts…”
    Surely the FA must know they’re in the Big Taxpayer stadium at the QE2 park in Stratford…!?!??!
    Too many dopes in the FA…..?

  8. Seems strange that “ whereabouts “ information should be included in Anti Doping regs .
    Where the heck do they think they are ? , in Colombia picking weed !.

  9. Drug testing of players is important. Another cockup by the club. But that’s it- a no news story.

    However I note that Saint Pep of Manchester will not face action following his behaviour the other night. Also I saw a little mention of City fans damaging the Wigan stadium after being goaded by home fans. Would that not have got headlines if it had been ‘West Ham thugs’ . And if it had happened in the LS there would have been a lead in to a copy and paste story about all the usual tripe-how the club got the ground with a massive state subsidy but all the fans hate it & there has been crowd trouble all the time blah blah……
