Reggae Boyz forward Junior Flemmings has signed a one-year deal with Birmingham Legion FC in the United Soccer League in the United States.

Phoenix Rising midfielder Junior Flemmings has been suspended for six games and fined an undisclosed sum following an investigation into allegations that he used “foul and abusive language” against a San Diego Loyal player on September 30.

In addition, according to reports the Jamaican could face additional sanctions from his club.

The suspension means that Flemmings will miss all of the 2020 USL Championships playoffs. He had scored 14 goals in 14 matches for the Phoenix Rising.

The USL said 11 persons were interviewed during the investigation. They included coaches, players and match officials.

Flemmings was accused by San Diego Loyals player Collin Martin, who is gay during a match on Wednesday, September 30. His actions prompted the Loyals players to abandon the match during the first half even though they were leading 3-1. Flemmings had characterized the allegations as being untrue.

The club subsequently sent the player on administrative leave while the league conducted an investigation into the allegations.
