Jedinak wins Mariners Medal
Central Coast midfield linchpin Mile Jedinak has been voted the most outstanding player of the Mariners' A-League season.
Jedinak, 23, was awarded the Mariners Medal by his peers and was an unquestioned standout of their charge towards this season's A-League premiership.
He started all but two of the Central Coast's pre-season cup, regular season and finals series matches, making 27 appearances in total.
Jedinak's season highlights include a pair of stunning long range strikes, one from a free kick against Sydney FC before Christmas and a second from even greater distance against the Melbourne Victory on New Year's Eve.
In addition to Jedinak's Mariners Medal success, his New Year's eve strike took out Central Coast's best goal of the season, as voted by the Marinators, the Mariners unofficial supporters group.
"Mile, among many of our playing group this season, has had an outstanding campaign and is fully deserving of this recognition," said Mariners executive chairman Lyall Gorman.
Other awards went to striker and major semi-final hero Sasho Petrovski, whose eight goals over the course of the A-League regular season and finals series earned him the golden boot prize - the third successive club golden boot Petrovski has won since the A-League's inception.
He won his first two with former club Sydney FC.
