Former Manchester City player George Glendon said he was 'terrified' when he was arrested on suspicion of rape but claims it was the woman who instigated sex after a night out.

Glendon, 22, of Outwood Drive, Heald Green, Cheadle, near Stockport, Cheshire, denies raping the woman on February 21, 2016.

Prosecution - Grimsby - Crown - Court - Woman

The prosecution at Grimsby Crown Court claims that the woman was so 'falling over drunk' that she was 'incapable of stringing a sentence together'.

The 19-year-old woman could not remember what happened to her apart from that she ended up in a man's bedroom with most of her clothes off.

Toilets - Lite - House - Club - Cleethorpes

She was 'really drunk' and had earlier been 'repeatedly falling over in the toilets' at the Lite House club in Cleethorpes.

Glendon took her to the Humberston home of one of his friends by taxi after helping her when she fell over in the club in the early hours.

Grimsby - Woman - Court - Heard

The Grimsby woman, now 21, could remember very little of what happened, the court heard.

Defence barrister Judy Khan QC has begun asking George Glendon questions.


He confirmed that he had no previous convictions.

The former City player told the court that, after leaving school in the Stockport area at the age of 16, he was offered a two-year football scholarship.

Manchester - City - Ages - City - Age

He was with Manchester City between the ages of 16 and 18 but had been 'scouted for City' at a very early age.

He had signed a contract at the age of nine but had been noticed since the age of six.

Scholarship - Contract - Manchester - City

After the scholarship, he was 'offered a professional contract' by Manchester City.

'I never officially played for the first team,' he said.

Bench - Sub - Side - Fleetwood - Town

But he was 'on the bench' as a sub for the side. He now played for Fleetwood Town.

Glendon said that he was initially on loan from Manchester City from August 2016 but moved permanently to Fleetwood in January last year.
