Marine v Tottenham: What has been said?

Jamie Carragher will sponsor Merseyside-based non-League side Marine in their FA Cup tie against Tottenham.

The Northern Premier League Division One North West outfit announced recently that former Liverpool and England defender Carragher’s JC23 Foundation stepped in after a previous sponsor pulled out.

The foundation will sponsor the dugouts and pre-match warm-up tops for the glamour clash at the Marine Travel Arena in Crosby.

Carragher lives in Crosby and has been a regular visitor to matches at Marine.

Marine chairman Paul Leary said: “We are indebted to Jamie and the JC23 Foundation for their support in this magical game for Marine.

“The JC23 Foundation do magnificent work in helping young people not just in Liverpool but right across the world. We are proud to partner with them on this special occasion.”

The JC23 Foundation, set up by Carragher in 2009, helps over 1,000 good causes for young people around the world each year.
