In our latest website feature, we are asking Swansea City players past and present to pick their favourite game from their time wearing the club’s colours. Next up is Swansea City legend, Lee Trundle.

Here, Trundle looks back at Swansea’s Football League Trophy final victory over Carlisle United at the Millennium Stadium in 2006.

I think my best game would have to be the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final at the Millennium Stadium.

Growing up, I watched the FA Cup on TV and the final was always a special occasion. Where we were at the time, that was like my FA Cup Final.

I know it wasn’t played at Wembley because the new Wembley was still being built, but to play at the Millennium Stadium where we had about 40,000 Swans fans travel was unreal.

Coming through Cardiff and seeing all the Swans fans and the black and white everywhere, it was a great occasion and even before that, to go and get fitted for a cup final suit was brilliant.

To go there and see that many fans was unbelievable and to get off to the start that I did and to score the goal that I did, for me that goes down as my best goal for Swansea.

The technique in it and with the occasion it has to go down as my best goal. To also set up Bayo (Akinfenwa) for the winner and to pick up the man of the match award, it was one of those days where everything went right for me.

I played really well all throughout the game and I enjoyed the match from start to finish.

There was no better feeling than lifting that cup at the end in front of our fans, so that has to go down as my greatest game.
