West Ham charged by FA

West Ham United have been charged with breaking 'anti-doping' rules by the Football Association.

The club have been given until 27 February to respond to an FA Charge in relation to regulation 14(d) of the 2017/18 anti-doping regulations regarding misconduct.

The clause in question states that member clubs shall be in breach of the league's rules "if the information contained in reports is either initially inaccurate or has not been updated by the Club as necessary to ensure it remains accurate, three times within any 12-month period".

And according to the FA, West Ham have been charged with "failing to ensure its 'club whereabouts' information was accurate on three occasions within 12 months".

The club have since responded via a statement on their website confirming that the charge relates to an internal oversight, and not any of the playing squad.

"The breach relates to administrative oversights on The FA's 'whereabouts' system," said West Ham. "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."
