Posted On 03 Aug 2012 at 9:10 pm

Three Brighton and Hove Albion footballers and a former colleague have denied sexually assaulting a woman.

Lewis Dunk, 20, Anton Rodgers, 19, and George Barker, 20, also deny voyeurism along with 21-year-old Steve Cook, who has since joined Bournemouth.

The four players were remanded on bail at Lewes Crown Court today (Friday 3 August) until Monday 21 January when they are due to go on trial.

They were arrested by Sussex Police on Thursday 19 January.

They were held on suspicion of sexually assaulting a woman at the Jury’s Inn Hotel by Brighton Station on Sunday 17 July last year after the Sussex Senior Cup Final.

Two other players were arrested at the same time – Tommy Elphick, 24, and Ben Sampayo, 19.

Tommy Elphick was quickly eliminated from the investigation. Ben Sampayo has since been told that he will not be charged and faces no further no action.
