Jamie Carragher steps in to help Marine

Former Liverpool and England defender Jamie Carragher has stepped in to help Marine ahead of their FA Cup tie by replacing a sponsor who pulled out after it was announced the match would be played behind closed doors.

Carragher has agreed to sponsor the Northern Premier League North West Division club via his JC23 Foundation.

The club are due to host Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup third round this coming Sunday (10th January).

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 helps over 1,000 good causes each year, including sick, disabled and disadvantaged children, as well as other community organisations.
