Twenty-three clubs covered and over 1,000 miles travelled, the Carabao Cup Trophy Relay reached Wembley Stadium, ahead of tomorrow's final, at the end of Day Six.
Darren Farley, on a solo mission for the first time since the start of the relay due to Chris Kamara’s Sky Sports commitments, visited two North London clubs to round off an eventful week on the road.
First up was the Emirates Stadium to visit former England and Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman. The 54-year old won 12 honours during his 13-year stay at the Gunners, but only one of those came in the EFL Cup.
The triumph came in 1993, under the management of George Graham, with Arsenal coming from a goal down against Sheffield Wednesday to secure a 2-1 victory at Wembley Stadium.
Despite ending his highly successful playing career nearly 14 years ago, Seaman still attracted plenty of interest at the Emirates, with a certain Roy Hodgson – aka Darren Farley - keen to secure his services.

It’s fair to say @thedavidseaman meets the ‘legend’ criteria.
Even a certain Mr. Hodgson (@DFImpressionist) wants to sign him!#CarabaoCupFinal 🏆 pic.twitter.com/e3r9VVTqBR
Tottenham Hotspur’s work in progress, White Hart Lane, was the final stop of the relay, as Farley looked at the new home for Mauricio Pochettino’s side as of next season.
The Carabao Cup Final is now less than 24 hours away, with Arsene Wenger looking for his first success in the competition. Standing in his and Arsenal’s way, however, are Pep Guardiola and the ever-impressive Premier League leaders, Manchester City.
