Chris Kamara and Darren Farley continued their tour across the country with the Carabao Cup, as another four clubs were visited on an eventful day four.
Returning to the West Midlands, the three-handled trophy made its way to the EFL Club Meeting based at Villa Park, where senior members of all 72 EFL clubs were present, before a trip across Birmingham to St Andrew’s.
Roger Johnson, who was part of the Birmingham City side that caused one of the biggest shocks in EFL Cup Final history, chatted to both Kammy and Darren about that unforgettable 2-1 win in the 2011 Final against Arsenal.
Whilst on the road to Luton Town and their official club shop, a quick call was made to Norwich City’s 1985 goalkeeping hero, Chris Woods, before the journey continued to Bedfordshire.
With just under 600 appearances in the EFL and over 180 goals to his name, it was hardly surprising the fans turned out in their numbers for Luton Town’s former number nine, Mick Harford.
Still employed by the club as the Chief Recruitment Officer, Mick posed for photos and signed shirts of those queuing up, before looking back at the 1988 Final – and even trying his hand at commentating on it!

The final stop of a busy day four came at the Kassam Stadium, as Kammy and Darren met with 1986 winner, Jeremy Charles.
Day Five sees a visit to Swansea City, Swindon Town and Queens Park Rangers, before finishing off at Stamford Bridge at the home of the current Premier League champions, Chelsea.
