Trust Owned Swans Flying High against Valiant Bantams: League cup final 5-0 win

Part Supporters' Trust owned Swansea City's football fairy tale continued after they defeated Bradford City at Wembley yesterday. The South Wales  club are 20% owned by the Swans Trust who helped rescue the club along with a consortium of local businesses, from extinction a decade or so ago. SwansTrust

Hitting above their weight (in the best possible non-patronising way) in the Premier League, the team in white from the Valleys have been doing very well in Englands top division, and were handed a plum tie with giant killers Bradford.

Swansea were 3-0 up when Bradford goalkeeper was sent off, and went 4-0 from the resulting penalty only to make it 5 later on in a record score for the final of the competition.

In a slight quirk of the English League system Swansea will represent England in the Europa League next term.

Big credit must also go to former CAFC assistant and mangar Phil Parkinson for his huge achievement getting the 4th tier Bradford City to the Final of one of England's major cups, taking many big scalps on the way.
