The problem of footballers using recreational drugs has reared its head again after it was revealed that two players have been banned for six months after twice testing positive for drugs - one for coc aine and the other for marijuana.

In a similar case a third player has been given a suspended six-month ban after twice testing positive for marijuana, while a fourth player has been warned for using the drug ecstasy.

The findings have been made public after the Football Association, who are not naming the players, agreed to details of drugs cases dating back to the summer of 2003 being published on UK Sport's anti-doping database.

None of the players whose suspensions have been revealed are big names - they play for Football League rather than Premier League clubs and both are understood to be squad players rather than first-team regulars.

The FA will not comment further beyond what has appeared on the UK Sport database.
