FOOTBALLER Ched Evans has lost a challenge against his conviction for rape.
The judges also threw out a bid by Evans (pictured) to have his sentence reduced.
He was jailed for five years in April for raping a 19-year-old woman in a hotel room.
Evans (23) had denied the offence but was found guilty by a jury at Caernarfon Crown Court of raping her at a hotel in North Wales in May of last year.
