Full League Cup Record 1960-2010

After 50 years in the competition alas the Mariners will miss out this year making the competition so much the poorer. Two quarter final appearances, losing 0-1 to West Ham and 0-2 Wolves (after 2 replays) are about our best returns along with a few paydays of course.

Best: QF 1965/66 & 1979/80 (2 replays)
