Swansea City defenders Ashley Williams and Garry Monk were thrilled to lift the Capital One Cup yesterday.

Both tasted action at Wembley.

Williams said: “It’s unbelievable, it’s what you dream of as a kid and now it’s come true — winning a Wembley final.”

Williams and club captain Monk, who refused to accept the armband when he went on as a second-half sub, collected the trophy together.

Monk grinned: “I generously allowed Ash to do it with me!

“It’s about the journey we’ve been on as a club for 10 years. In the centenary year, to bring a major cup back puts the icing on the cake.”
