Swansea City defender Ashley Williams praises the supporters for turning out for the club's open-top bus parade.

Ardent supporters of Swansea City took to the streets on Tuesday as the newly-crowned League Cup winners paraded their trophy on an open-top bus.

The Welsh outfit were 5-0 winners over Bradford City at the weekend, a result that secured their first major trophy and a place in Europe next season.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Swansea captain Ashley Williams said: "There are supporters at this club who have been behind Swansea City for a long time and have seen the club during tough times.

"Now they can celebrate the club's first major trophy. It's a great reward for them, and I'm sure they are all really enjoying this success."

Swansea return to league action at home to Newcastle United at the weekend.
