Elrich: In action for Fulham back in 2005

Former Fulham midfielder Ahmad Elrich has been charged with multiple gun and drugs offences, and refused bail.

The 29-year-old, who played for Fulham in the 2005-06 season, is remanded in custody and will reappear at Parramatta Local Court on June 17.

Elrich was stopped by police for having a faulty tail light while riding a motorcycle in western Sydney last Thursday.

Police say they found two pistols loaded with ammunition and a drug for which Elrich did not have a prescription.

He was charged with 11 offenses, including two counts of possessing an unauthorized pistol.

Elrich also played for A-League clubs Wellington Phoenix and the Central Coast Mariners.

He represented Australia at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. In 2006, he suffered a serious knee injury whilst playing for Australia in an Asian Cup qualifier against Kuwait.
