Sheffield United keeper Paddy Kenny's appeal against a nine-month drugs ban has been dismissed by the Football Association.

The 31-year-old, who was handed the suspension last month after failing a doping test, challenged the severity of the punishment, but has failed in his efforts to have it reduced.

An FA statement said: "The Appeal Board dismissed the appeal by Mr Paddy Kenny against his nine-month suspension for a breach of the FA doping regulations."

The statement continued: "The Regulatory Commission's decision to impose a nine-month suspension was an appropriate measure of the seriousness of the offence."
