Robinson handed two-year doping ban
February 19, 2014
Rotherham player William Robinson has received a two-year ban for an anti-doping violation.
Robinson tested positive for Clomiphene, a hormone and metabolic modulator and a prohibited substance, at an out-of-competition test in July last year.
A three-man disciplinary panel suspended Robinson, who admitted the offence, from August 13, 2013 - the date of an original temporary suspension - until August 13, 2015.
