Sheffield Utd keeper Kenny banned after drug test

Sheffield United have suspended their goalkeeper Paddy Kenny after he tested positive for the banned stimulant drug ephedrine. The Republic of Ireland stopper provided a sample following a play-off semi-final match against Preston in May.

A Sheffield United spokesman said: "We can confirm that Paddy Kenny has been suspended by the club. This is an ongoing, confidential matter and as such we are unable to comment further."

Ephedrine is on the list of the World Anti-Doping Agency's specified substances but is contained in some cold cures, and a positive test does not carry the usual automatic two-year suspension.
