Charlie Adam is hoping he can write his name into Liverpool's rich footballing tapestry by becoming the latest in a long line of Reds to lift the League Cup at Wembley.

Kenny Dalglish's side face Cardiff on Sunday afternoon and will bid to end a period of six years without a trophy.

The last time Liverpool lifted a piece of silverware was when they triumphed over West Ham in the 2006 FA Cup final, and you would have to go back a further 11 years for the last time the Reds won at Wembley.

Adam, meanwhile, cites winning silverware as one of the main reasons he swapped Bloomfield Road for Anfield last summer, and his decision could prove to be vindicated only seven months into his Liverpool career.

And the former Blackpool captain says it will be a proud occasion to wear the famous Red of Liverpool at the most famous football ground of them all.

"For me, it will be a proud occasion. This club is a massive club that has won trophies at home and abroad," Adam said, according to

"When I came here, I said I wanted to win trophies. Fortunately the final of the first competition of the season has come around, and we are in it.

"We've had to work hard to get here and we will do our best to enjoy the occasion but the only way we can do that is by winning it.

"To be part of a team which is successful is great. We are on the first step towards success, and if we can do that, then great."
