April 18, 1993 is a day Steve Morrow will never forget.

The Irishman was a fringe player at Arsenal but his name entered folklore after he emerged as an unlikely matchwinner in the League Cup final.

Sheffield Wednesday took the lead at Wembley through John Harkes but man of the match Paul Merson levelled and Morrow fired home a late winner.

His ecstasy turned to agony when he broke his arm during an exuberant post-match celebration with Tony Adams.

But Morrow made history when he became the first man to receive a winner's medal before an FA Cup final, when Arsenal faced Wednesday again five weeks later.
