Meanwhile President of the Dominica Football Association (DFA) Glen Etienne, has warned footballers to “stay away from illicit drugs” as the DFA will have a “zero tolerate for persons involved” in such activities.
“The DFA in its quest to stamp out doping in football, will be conducting random drug testing this season. Individuals will be identified before games and will be asked to provide urine samples for analysis…as we have always said doping has no place in sports,” Etienne said during an address at the DFA’s prize giving ceremony.
He also disclosed that just a few weeks ago a few players were asked to provide urine sample for analysis. “We are serious about keeping drugs in sports,” he stated.
Also addressing the brief ceremony was sports Minister Justina Charles, who called on players to “be disciplined, and respect officials and rules of the game.”
