The Disciplinary Committee of football’s world governing body FIFA has imposed a nine-month ban on Reggae Boy Jermaine Hue after he tested positive for a banned substance at a World Cup qualifying match.

In a statement a while ago, the local football authority the Jamaica Football Federation said the ban which will end on May 6, 2014 will forbid Hue from participating in any competition which covers all types of matches, including domestic international friendly and official or other sport related activity.

Hue, 35, a midfielder with Harbour View Football Club, tested positive after Jamaica's 2-0 loss against host Honduras on June 11.

Meanwhile, team doctor Carlton Fraser has been declared ineligible for a period of four years until August 6, 2017.

Fraser will not be able to participate in any competition or other sport related activity.

Fraser was banned for administering the drug, dexamethasone.
