He also admitted the conquest “game” led to him sleeping with 20 women during a similar competition in 2016.
Prosecutor Ms Miranda Moore QC said earlier in the retrial: “A sleeping girl cannot consent. She would not have countenanced sexual activity with Hepburn.
“He would have known she was with his mate. She was in Joe’s bed, not his. On the evidence, his bed was empty.”
Worcestershire County Cricket Club (WCCC) said it was “appalled” by the details in the case, while the the Professional Cricketers’ Association (PCA) said the case served as a “stark reminder” of the standards it expects.
Det Chief Insp Ian Wall of West Mercia Police said: “We welcome the conviction and I hope it will offer some comfort to the victim, who has shown great courage and strength in coming forward.
“At the time of the offence Hepburn was in a position of trust and power as a professional sportsman…and I hope this conviction will provide reassurance to other victims of sexual offences.”
