Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur will travel to eighth-tier Marine in the third round of the FA Cup after the draw held on Monday evening.

Premier League and Championship clubs enter the competition following several rounds of preliminary qualification and two rounds of the proper tournament. Spurs’ opponents have played seven games to get to this stage.

Northern Premier League Division One side Marine became only the second side from the eighth tier to reach the third round after beating Havant & Waterlooville after extra time on Sunday.

Following the draw, Marine boss Neil Young told on BBC One: “It’s an unbelievable draw. We will plan as best we can. Usually with Jose’s teams, he puts pretty strong sides out. We have won seven games to get here and this is a great reward.”

Club captain Niall Cummins – an Arsenal fan – was present alongside Young at the draw and told BBC Radio Merseyside afterwards it was the hardest draw they could have been given.

“I don’t know where to begin," he said. "I think we’re officially the lowest-ranked team left in it and, judging by the Premier League table at the moment, they’re the hardest team we could have possibly got.

“It’s absolutely unbelievable. I checked my phone a second after the draw and it’s gone off like mad.

“I’m so, so glad it’s at home for our fans as well.

“I’m glad the game’s over a month away so it can sink in.

“It feels like you’re dreaming. I don’t know where to start. It doesn’t feel real, this whole thing. When the ball came out and it was Tottenham, I punched the air. I’m a big Arsenal fan and I was thinking, ‘Yes, I get the chance to play against Tottenham.

“I just hope we can slip into tier one before the game and can get more fans because everyone deserves to be there and witness that occasion – it’ll be fantastic for everyone involved.”
