It has been 11 years to the day since Nahki Wells became the first Bermudian to play in a major English cup final when he reached the League Cup final with Bradford City in the 2012-13 season.

The final was played at the new Wembley Stadium, making the forward the first Bermudian to play at the iconic venue.

Bradford, who had beaten Premier League trio Wigan Athletic, Arsenal and Aston Villa on the way to becoming the first team from English football’s fourth tier to reach this final since 1962, lost 5-0 to top-flight side Swansea City.

Goals from Nathan Dyer and Michu gave Swansea a comfortable half-time lead.

Dyer added his second after the break, with Swansea adding a fourth with a penalty after goalkeeper Matt Duke was sent off for bringing down Jonathan de Guzman, who scored from the spot.

De Guzman notched his second in stoppage time to complete the rout.

Wells joined Bradford after impressing on trial in June 2011, making 112 appearances for the West Yorkshire outfit, scoring 53 goals before signing for Championship side Huddersfield Town in January 2014 for an undisclosed club record fee.
