Club Statement

27th May 2014

London Skolars player Sebastian Kolasa has been suspended for 15 months after being found guilty of evading an out-of-competition doping test carried out by UK Anti-Doping at the club’s training ground on August 21, 2013.

 Club CEO Hector McNeil said: “The club views this whole episode extremely seriously and, like the sport as a whole, we take a strong anti-doping stance.

 “The National Anti-Doping Panel that heard the case acknowledged that Sebastian did not commit any anti-doping rule violation involving use of a banned substance, and in fact two days later provided a negative test, but evading a test is a serious offence which is recognized in the severity of the sentence.

 “Sebastian is a promising youngster, who realises he has made a serious error of judgement and is full of remorse. He pleaded guilty to the charge and cooperated fully with UK Anti-Doping, for which he deserves credit.”

 Sebastian Kolasa made one substitute appearance for the club in 2013. The ban takes effect from 1 September 2013.
