Football: Swansea to toast League Cup win with bus parade

Swansea City have announced that they will celebrate their emphatic victory in the League Cup final with a bus parade through the city centre on Tuesday.

The Welsh side thrashed fourth-tier minnows Bradford City 5-0 in the final at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday to mark the club's centenary year with a first major trophy.

"This is a fantastic moment for the Swans and for Swansea as a whole," said Swansea's Lord Mayor, Dennis James.

"After their promotion to the Premier League, Sunday's events open a new chapter in a remarkable success story for our city's football team.

"I'm sure thousands of fans will want to line the route and be part of an event that will be remembered for years to come."
