A year ago today...Today marks the one-year anniversary of when Walsall played at Wembley Stadium for the first time in the club’s history.
Nearly 30,000 Saddlers supporters descended on the capital to see us end our 127-year wait to play at the home of English football.
And although we didn’t perform on the day – losing 2-0 to Bristol City in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final – it was an occasion that will never be forgotten.
Below we look back on an historic day…

Despite the result, fans still enjoyed their day out at the national stadium...
Walsall were well beaten yesterday. But I got to see Walsall play at Wembley in front of over 72k people. So happy! pic.twitter.com/ikamQH6fxW— Stephen Marsh (@puddletown_tom) March 23, 2015

Gutted about the result. But I'm honoured to be part of the first Walsall team to get to wembley. Hope fans enjoyed it as much as possible.— Richard O'Donnell (@RichODonnell23) March 22, 2015
