WARRINGTON-BORN Alfie Devine has made history on his debut for Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur.

In coming off the bench to score in their FA Cup tie against Marine this evening, Devine became the club's youngest ever goalscorer aged 16 years and 163 days old.

> Here's what Spurs boss Jose Mourinho said about Devine's achievement

The son of former St Helens rugby player Sean, Devine signed for Spurs from Wigan Athletic in the summer having starred in the Latics' FA Youth cup campaign last season.

Having replaced Moussa Sissoko at half time, he scored a classy goal to wrap up the scoring for Jose Mourinho's side in a 5-0 win over their gallant non-league hosts.

Devine, who was in the youth system at Liverpool before being released aged 11, was also named player of the tournament while playing for England under 16s at the SportChain Cup in December.

In their dream FA Cup third round tie, Marine's starting side featured three former Warrington Town players – defenders Dave Raven and Adam Hughes and forward James Barrigan.
