Roberto Martinez: FA Cup Final surprise for golden pair


Devoted Wigan Athletic fans Alan and Rita Winstanley had an unexpected gift for their golden wedding - tickets to watch their heroes play in their first FA Cup Final.

The couple, who met in the 1950s when Wigan was a non-league football club, were handed their tickets for the Wembley date against Manchester City by first team manager Roberto Martinez.

Mr and Mrs Winstanley, aged 79 and 78, missed the team's semi-final victory over Millwall on Saturday as it clashed with their golden wedding celebrations.
