Barnet winger Mark Marshall has been banned by an Independent Regulatory Commission from all football activity for two years, following a positive test for a prohibited substance in competition.

Marshall tested positive for Methylhexaneamine following Barnet’s League Two fixture with Dagenham & Redbridge on Boxing Day last year.
