16 May 2007 marks the 20th anniversary of Coventry City’s FA Cup win against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley and the end of a 104-year wait for a major trophy.

Winger Dave Bennett told the Coventry Telegraph: ‘My abiding memory is just the way we did it – with great enthusiasm and with a laugh.’

Keith Houchen, whose header in that game was recently voted the best Cup Final goal, said: ‘To be voted most memorable is testament to what we all did at Coventry that year and such a wonderful Cup Final.’

Houchen will be part of a legends parade at this Saturday’s first Cup Final at the newly-rebuilt Wembley.
