NORWICH: Ex-City Footballer Denies Sex Assault
Former Norwich city footballer Ched Evans has appeared in court to face sex assault charge.
23 year old Evans, who was on loan with Norwich in 2007 is accused of rape after an alleged assault at a hotel in Wales last year.
The now Wales and Sheffield United striker, and Clayton McDonald, 23, and now a Port Vale player, both deny the attack which allegedly took place at a Premier Inn near Rhyl, North Wales, during a bank holiday last May.
Evans, originally from St Asaph, is a graduate of the Manchester City youth academy and scored 10 goals in 28 league appearances while on loan to Norwich City in 2007.
The following year he scored in his debut game for Wales and later joined League One side Sheffield United in a £3 million deal.
Liverpool-born McDonald, who was also part of the Manchester City youth scheme, has played for Macclesfield Town, Chesterfield and Walsall.
He joined Port Vale at the end of last season.
The case continues.
