Petition Tag - cardiff city football club
On the 23rd of April 1927, Fred Keenor climbed the famous Wembley steps to receive the FA Cup from the King. His team, Cardiff City, had become the first, and as yet the only, Welsh team to win the coveted trophy.
The victory was a momentous and much celebrated occasion in the history of Wales. That morning a Welsh newspaper had printed a picture of the Cardiff City captain knocking Lloyd George off a pedestal labelled `the most important man in Wales'.
The game made Keenor a Welsh national hero in a way that the rugby stars that preceded him had not been. South and north celebrated Cardiff City's achievement and Fred Keenor was at the centre of that triumph.
