The judge is summing up in the case of two footballers accused of rape.

Sheffield United striker Ched Evans, 23, and Port Vale defender Clayton McDonald, 23,

deny the alleged rape of a 19-year-old at a North Wales hotel in May last year.

Yesterday, Ched Evans today denied "using" a woman for his own "gratification".

The woman told police she has no memory of the incident and the prosecution

says she was too drunk to consent to sexual intercourse.

Green, Penistone, South Yorkshire, repeatedly denied accusations put to him by the prosecution that the girl was unconscious, semi-conscious or not in a state to consent to sex. John Philpotts, prosecuting, said:

She was simply a girl that you and your friend ... you just used her for your own gratification."

Both men admit having sex with the woman but say it was consensual.

The trial continues.
