Kenny launches appeal

Published Add your comment

Sheffield United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has launched an appeal against his nine-month ban for failing a drugs test.

The 31-year-old tested positive for banned substance ephedrine after last season's play-off win against Preston.

Kenny, who has not been allowed to train with any football club since last summer due to FIFA rules, will have his appeal heard in 10 days time.

The Blades keeper has the backing of the players' union, the Professional Footballers Association, in an attempt to get his ban reduced, though if he fails, he will only be available for the final two Championship games.
