Alfie Devine: From Liverpool reject to Spurs record breaker

Alfie Devine broke a Tottenham record with his goal in their FA Cup win at Marine.

The 16-year-old midfielder was named in Jose Mourinho's squad for the third-round tie and didn't take long to make his mark after his substitution at half-time, with Spurs 4-0 up.

15 minutes after his introduction, Devine collected the ball from Lucas Moura, turned in the box and rifled in at the near post to extend the visitors' lead.

In doing so, Devine became the youngest goalscorer in Spurs' 138-year history.

Devine actually had played for Liverpool until he was 11 and came through the ranks at Wigan Athletic, before a move to Spurs last summer for a reported fee of £300,000.
