Back on April 5, 2009, the Hatters defeated Scunthorpe United 3-2 at Wembley, with Claude Gnakpa scoring a memorable extra time winner after goals from Chris Martin and Tom Craddock. Here's a special gallery on the Town team that took to the pitch on that famous day.

Stayed on as manager of the club despite the 30-point deduction and in what was a turbulent season, masterminded Luton and their long suffering supporters to a moment to remember and savour.
Only played in the final of the competition, as Conrad Logan and Lewis Price featured during the early rounds. No real chance with either goal on the day. Now with Leyton Orient.
Only missed one match in the competition, the 1-0 win at Walsall, as he was one of a handful of homegrown players to help Town lift the trophy at Wembley. Now plays for Hayes & Yeading.
Another who only played in the final of the competition, one of his 88 appearances in total for the Hatters. Jailed for eight years in December, 2013 for robbery and possession of an imitation firearm.
The centre half's only appearance also came in the final, lining up alongside Michael Spillane. Played 172 times in total for the club. Most recently with Shrewsbury as first team coach, leaving in November.
Popular on-loan Norwich defender started every single game of the competition for Town in what his his only season at Kenilworth Road. Now captain of Chelmsford City.
Scored a last minute winner at Walsall in the quarter-finals and got through 117 minutes at Wembley before being replaced by Sam Parkin. Currently with Lowestoft Town.
Club captain lifted the trophy at Wembley as the Hatters triumphed. Huge favourite amongst the supporters during his two spells at Kenilworth Road.
Netted in the early stages of the competition as Luton drew 2-2 with Brentford, winning on penalties. Played the full 120 in the final too. Plying his trade at Torquay United now.
Long-serving midfielder missed just the second round game with Brentford. It was his pass that sent Claude Gnapka through to win it for the Hatters. Not playing professionally since leaving Rochdale.
On-loan Norwich forward made it 1-1 for the Hatters after taking Craddock's pass to fire into the net. On target in the second round game when Town defeat Brentford as well. Now on loan with Hull in the Championship.
Signed in the January from Middlesbrough, scoring in the semi-final against Brighton. Set up Chris Martin in the final and then on target himself, making it 2-1 with an astute finish, before coming off for Gnakpa.
Wrote himself into Luton folklore by coming off the bench to win the final for Luton, beating Iron keeper Joe Murphy to Keith Keane's pass and lobbing home. Also scored the winner as Town beat Colchester 1-0.
Striker had the final three minutes of the final on in place of Rossi Jarvis. Made one other sub appearance in the competition, during the semi-final victory over Brighton.
Goalkeeper was only signed in the March, as he never actually played for the Hatters, an unused sub in the final. Now in the Premier League with Brighton.
Played three times in the earlier stages, against Walsall, Colchester and Brighton. Didn't make it on to the pitch at Wembley though.
Wholehearted defender started both the semi-final legs against Brighton, but wasn't selected for the final.
