Some clubs were born and had broad visions looking to greatness, but the Marine was a bit different as the team was formed by a group of former university students and a local businessman named Marie. That was inspired by the name of a hotel in the Mercy River area.
The Marine concept, like many small English clubs, is not without ambitions. But they formed this team as a community area. This is a club among the big clubs like Liverpool and Everton, as well as the younger Tranmere Rovers, so over the past 100 years, Marine has made it clear that They would like to be the second favorite team of fans in this city.
“Marine has been established for a long time. We have a very clear club structure. By holding the majority of the team’s shareholders The shareholders and the members are the fans of the team. “ Paul Leary, one of Marine’s chief executives, started talking about their club.
“We are all ready to give everything for this club. Live as a friend to the natural community and be friendly to every household here. ”

Have spent to support grassroots business Meet familiar people On the day the # 1 love team did not compete
Neil Felton, Liverpool fans An ex-Liverpool fan who has become a fan of the current Marine cheerleaders say he found some truth … Liverpool are great. But it’s too mass And that finesse That made him more and more difficult to get to the core of the club
Felton said he was bored of queuing for tickets to Liverpool that cost £ 140-180 (£ 6-7 thousand) because of his many children in the home. And have to take their children to look at the field Waste too much money And even more than buying tickets is to queue up That sometimes waited in line for hours
“I remember that day, I took the boys to the Liverpool v Oldham game in 2014, we reached Anfield. And have to queue for hours When it was my turn to buy, they said that the child tickets were sold out. Only an adult ticket At that time I felt it was not my way. “ Felton started talking before he found the closest team Marine to cheer and watch every match played at home.

“At least I have a lot of money left to buy tickets. I understand and know many families who have been watching games at Anfield for decades. But now they are starting to have problems. Unable to raise his kids as Liverpool fans. We have no right to see the field. And it takes a weekend to watch the game on the TV screen … that’s pretty sad. “ Felton continued.
“I respect everyone’s point of view. But for me who grew up with the Anfield lights I feel that for a long time They keep pushing local fans further and further, but at Marine it is something different. This club gives a lot of heart to its fans. They run by holding fans as the number 1 they want everyone to come and watch on the pitch. Which in addition to the fun What it brings is an invaluable social experience. ”
“Today’s survival in Marine Division is even more impressive to me than the night in Istanbul in 2005.” Felton said to The Guardian.

What Felton talks about seems to fit him … Marine Club has a lot of regular fans. Regardless of whether those fans like them as the primary or secondary teams. The capacity of their home stadium can hold between 400-500 people and there are fans who regularly attend home games at full capacity. That must be considered quite a bit for teams playing in the 8th division of the country.
In homework and have strong ties in the community There are so many cute things going on in this Marine team, such as the back yard of the goal that is adjacent to that man’s house. There will be a house number placard to let the club staff know that If the ball goes over the fence, it will have to follow the night ball to where the number is, Like to find something different. They came to build their own empire in Marine’s yard, some came secretly to eat beer or smoke. According to the teenage age try In addition, after each game is over, if the Marine is the winner. The best players are given a beer as a gift from the fans, and finally after the game, Marine fans will have a drink with the team’s players. Most of them are semi-professional football groups in local bars.
