Default Footballers Ched Evans and Clayton McDonald accused of rape

Players in court for alleged attack in Wales last May
Prosecution alleges incident was recorded on film

Two footballers "procured" a drunk teenage girl and raped her as two of their friends watched and filmed, a court has heard. The Wales and Sheffield United striker Ched Evans, 23, and Clayton McDonald, also 23, deny the attack, which allegedly took place at a Premier Inn near Rhyl, north Wales, during a bank holiday last May.

John Philpotts, prosecuting, told Caernarfon crown court that the Port Vale defender McDonald, of Marys Gate, Crewe, Cheshire, and Evans, of Ashtree Gardens, Millhouse Green, Penistone, South Yorkshire, had admitted having sex with the complainant.

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

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 Higgins's phone showed that he had been filming or trying to film the incident.
