Police quiz youth team quartet over sex attack
The assault is said to have taken place in the showers at the League One club, who cannot be named for legal reasons.
A 17-year-old has been admitted to hospital, with a fellow patient telling The Sun “The lad was in a lot of distress and was hobbling as he came into casualty.
“He told nurses he had been attacked by a group of team-mates in the showers. It sounded absolutely horrific. It wasn’t long before police came down and he was asked to go through what had happened again.
“He was in a right state. He was constantly in tears and was in a great deal of distress and embarrassment. I really felt for him.”
On Wednesday night three of the four players arrested were released on bail until next month, while the fourth was released without charge.
A club statement read: “We are aware there has been an alleged incident. We will assist and communicate with the relevant authorities.”
