West Ham have until February 27 to respond to charge

West Ham United have been charged with a breach of anti-doping rules, the Football Association has announced.

The FA said Premier League club West Ham was alleged to have “failed to ensure its ‘club whereabouts’ information was accurate on three occasions within 12 months”.

West Ham have until February 27 to respond, the FA added.

West Ham said the FA investigation did not involve any offence by a player.

A club 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.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
