The English clubs offer stadium facilities to the Marine as Neil Young's side is going to play against Tottenham.

Due to the coronavirus and the freezing weather of England, the


club has been unable to have training sessions. They had to be training to get prepared for the match against






, however, could not leave Neil Young's team alone in this matter and let his side use their stadium facilities. Neil Young said:

"We have had a few issues, certainly since the new lockdown, in terms of training venues, Our pitch, where we were due to train on Thursday, had to be covered earlier in the week due to frost, but the leisure centres that we would normally use have been closed because of lockdown.

"So we are very thankful to Everton, who stepped in on Thursday and allowed us to use their Finch Farm training ground at the last minute, and Liverpool, who have also allowed us to use their training ground on Saturday.

"We are just glad they could step in. We are preparing for the biggest game in our history against one of the top sides in the country, but at 3pm on Thursday, we had nowhere to train, so we're very grateful that the two clubs have been able to step in.

"Without their help, we could have been going into the game with very little preparation, other than what we can do on a tactics board and the playing of a video."

The rise of Coronavirus cases has been lately affecting football so much. Young added:

"From a part-time perspective, it's been a bit of a nightmare with the Covid regulations," he added.

"At this round of the competition, you are allowed to have nine substitutes, but I don't think we have enough players to name nine. That's the reality for us.

"But we are coming up against a formidable side, coached by one of the greatest managers in the history of the game and a team of world-class players including many international captains. It is dream time for us."
