HE has spent years with his beloved Swans but even Kev Johns was swept up in the emotion on a remarkable day for the club.

The Swansea Sound DJ and Swans chaplain had the chance to walk on the hallowed turf of Wembley Stadium before the match as he addressed the crowd made up of 33,000 Swans fans — and received a soaking from the first team in the dressing room afterwards too.

The star said: "It was a fantastic day for everyone.

"We got to the ground about 12.30pm and as it was so cold they let us in the ground.

"I had gone up with the guys from the media team as they needed an extra hand to interview the players for the club's website. At the end of the day I am a football fan. With work, I had been on the pitch with other teams but never with Swansea City.

"After the game the camera crew said we were going to go into the dressing room, I would never have thought I would have gone in there.

"So we went in there and a magnum of champagne got poured over my head.

"There were a number of people behind me and no-one would admit it but Chico Flores was the one who distracted me.

"I thought it was a lovely day, the Bradford players were very gracious in defeat."
