RHYL'S leading scorer this season, Carl Lamb, has been suspended by the Football Association of Wales after failing a drug test.

The much-travelled 32-year-old tested positive for a banned substance following Rhyl's game against Newtown in December and the FAW is now investigating.

A spokesman for the Lillies confirmed to the Rhyl Journal that the club was "abiding by the ruling of the governing body until the full details of the incident have been revealed".

It is the second time that Rhyl have been involved in a drugs case as striker Andy Moran was stripped of his Golden Boot award in 2004 and suspended for eight months after also testing positive for a banned substance.

Lamb joined Rhyl last summer after trialling with Aberystwyth Town and has scored seven goals from his 12 (+5) appearances this season from a career total of 33 from 87 (+35) with Bangor City, Cefn Druids, TNS and Welshpool.
