Non-league side Macclesfield thumped League One's Swindon Town 4-0 in the first round of the FA Cup, prompting the players and coaching staff of the eliminated club to personally refund fans for the price of their tickets. Swindon manager Mark Cooper first came up with the idea after the match and on Monday he confirmed that all 305 supporters who made the trip would get their money back.
From the BBC:
Cooper apologised to supporters after the game and told BBC Wiltshire on Monday: "We've agreed to cover the cost of the fans that travelled.
"Not because we're creeping, it's a gesture of appreciation."
He added: "I just made sure the players knew it was unacceptable."
It's a nice gesture from Cooper and his team, especially since League One wages are hardly comparable to those in the Premier League.
