Brimmer wins Mark Viduka Medal

Melbourne Victory star Jake Brimmer shared the Mark Viduka Medal for players of the match in the 2-1 FFA Cup Final win over the Central Coast Mariners.

Brimmer produced another strong performance as Victory claimed a second FFA Cup crown and first since 2015 in a thrilling decider at AAMI Park on Saturday.

The midfielder shared the honour with Mariners defender Kye Rowles.

A Jason Davidson free-kick put Victory ahead with 20 minutes remaining before Chris Ikonomidis’ excellent strike doubled the lead in additional time.

Oliver Bozanic pulled a goal back for the Mariners to make for a nervous finish, but Victory held on in the dying moments.

Brimmer became the second Victory player to win the Mark Viduka Medal, after Kosta Barbarouses in 2015.
