You know you give one about the JP Trophy. Yeah, you love it. Southampton and Carlisle fans certainly did, but it was Saints who emerged victorious after a very one-sided final at Wembley, to win their first domestic trophy since winning the 1976 FA Cup.
The south-coast club took the lead on 15 minutes through Rickie Lambert’s penalty after Peter Murphy handled in the area. Adam Lallana doubled the lead just before half-time when he headed in from Michail Antonio’s long throw.
Saints’ decisive third goal came just after the break from a Papa Waigo header, then Antonio scored the fourth with a smart low shot from the edge of the box.
On 84 minutes, sub Gary Madine headed home Ian Harte’s free-kick late on to give Carlisle a consolation goal.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about the final was the turn-out, with some 44,000 Southampton fans making the trip to Wembley and almost 30,000 Carlisle fans. Good show.
