SHEFFIELD United ace Ched Evans and another footballer “procured” a drunk teenage girl and raped her as two of their friends watched and filmed, a court has heard.
The 23-year-old Blades striker, along with former Chesterfield FC player Clayton McDonald, also aged 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 at Caernarfon Crown Court today, said Welsh international Evans, of Ashtree Gardens, Millhouse Green, Penistone, and Port Vale defender McDonald, of Marys Gate, Crewe, Cheshire, had 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.
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 he had been filming or trying to film the incident.
The trial continues.
