Sheffield United Footballers 'raped extremely drunk teenager while pal tried to film it on phone'

Sheffield United striker Ched Evans and Port Vale defender Clayton McDonald admit having sex but deny rape

Two footballers "procured" a drunk teenage girl and raped her in a hotel as two of their friends watched and filmed, a court has heard.

Sheffield United striker Ched Evans and Port Vale defender Clayton McDonald, both 23, deny the allegations.

John Philpotts, prosecuting, told Caernarfon Crown Court that McDonald and Evans admitted having sex with the complainant.

But he said the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was too drunk to consent to sexual intercourse.

The attack allegedly took place at a Premier Inn near Rhyl, North Wales, during a bank holiday last May

Mr Philpotts said that while the attack happened Jack Higgins, an "associate" of the footballers, and Ryan Roberts, Evans's brother, had watched through a window.

Video recordings found on Mr Higgins's phone showed that he had been filming or trying to film the incident.

The court heard that McDonald and Evans had spent the night of Sunday May 29 socialising with friends in Rhyl.

In the early hours of Monday May 30, 6ft 6in McDonald got into a taxi which the complainant had flagged down.

He then took the woman, whom he had seen fall over in a kebab shop, to the Premier Inn hotel as he called someone on his phone to say he had "got a girl".
The receptionist said he saw the two men who were waiting outside watching what was happening in the room through the window.

Evans and McDonald subsequently admitted to police that they "separately" had sex with the claimant in the room.

"The prosecution say that she did not truly consent to that activity," Mr Philpotts said.

"She was in no fit state to consent.

"And we say that neither man reasonably believed she was consenting."
