Marine sell 20000 virtual tickets for FA Cup tie against Tottenham

Players of eighth-tier Marine may have been denied the chance to swap jerseys with their Tottenham Hotspur counterparts following their 5-0 FA Cup defeat on Sunday but they can look forward to a delivery of new shirts courtesy of the Premier League club.

Lucas Moura whipped home a fine 20-yard free kick-before Vinicius got his third with a looped finish.

"We didn't want to be surprised". This was the ultimate culture shock for the millionaires of Tottenham.

Unlike Tottenham's new $1.5 billion arena, this is a sparse venue crammed between two streets of red-brick terraced houses with one small stand.

Despite Gareth Bale coming on as substitute for Alli, that was the end of the scoring on a day the Northern Premier Division North West League minnows will never forget. We tried to kill the game as soon as we could.

In the second half, Devine registered a historic goal, which became the final nail in the coffin.

Most important, of course, a 5-0 victory to take us into round four in our first tie against non-league opposition since 1995, a hat-trick for Carlos Vinicius, history made with Alfie Devine becoming our youngest-ever player and goalscorer at 16 years, 163 days and Jose picked out Dele and Gedson for their contributions.

As a result of the COVID-19 restrictions, the club said they would sell virtual tickets to make up for the potential loss in revenue.

"The cup run has been a lifesaver for us financially for where we are in non-league", Marine manager Neil Young said.

"I am buying. If I win, I won't be able to make it valid because we have our preseason".
