Michael Laudrup's Swans hammered League Two Bradford 5-0 at Wembley to lift the trophy only ten years after the club almost dropped out of the Football League.

It was the first major trophy in the Welsh club's history, and hordes braved the damp and cold weather to welcome their heroes.

An open-top bus carrying the Swansea players and management set off from the city's Dragon Hotel, with the parade ending at the Guildhall, where a civic reception will be held.

The Wembley victory, secured by two goals each from Nathan Dyer and Jonathan de Guzman along with another for top scorer Michu, means Swansea will play in next season's Europa League.
