Rovers legend David Dunn joined Chris Kamara and Darren Farley to get his hands on the League Cup for the first time in 16 years.
Goals from Matt Jansen and Andy Cole were enough for Rovers to defeat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in the Welsh capital in February 2002 and the trophy returned to Ewood on Monday.
Legend Dunn, who played the full match in Cardiff, was in attendance to talk about his memories from that day.
Chris Kamara and football impressionist Darren Farley are embarking on an epic seven-day road trip to visit the 23 clubs that have won the League Cup ahead of the competition’s 2018 Final.
The pair will be taking the famous three-handled trophy on a nationwide relay covering over 1,000 miles as they celebrate the history of the League Cup.
On the way they’ll meet and share stories with legends from each winning side, culminating in a trip to Wembley Stadium on Sunday 25th February to deliver the trophy moments before kick-off ahead of the final between Arsenal and Manchester City.
The Trophy Relay will include stops at famous grounds and cities. Kamara and Farley will also be popping into players’ houses, club shops and will even take in special visits to iconic locations including Gladstone pottery museum in Stoke and the Birmingham Canal, where players from all of the winning West Midlands Clubs will board a boat with the Carabao Cup and go on a trip down memory lane.
