Who will win the Victory Medal?

Another Victory Medallist will be crowned on Saturday, adding their name to the club’s illustrious honour roll.

Victory claimed a record fourth Hyundai A-League championship with a 1-0 win over the Newcastle Jets in the Grand Final.

It capped a fine campaign, which will be celebrated with the Victory Medal, presented by Bluestar Global Logistics, at Crown Palladium.

We take a look at some of the contenders.

George starred for Victory in his first season in the Hyundai A-League. The winger’s pace, power and trickery created plenty of opportunities for Victory, while his set-pieces constantly caused issues for opponents. George created the second most chances in the Hyundai A-League.

Lawrence Thomas

The Victory goalkeeper once again performed strongly, with his Finals Series a highlight. Thomas was spectacular in a Semi Final win over Sydney FC before winning the Joe Marston Medal in the Grand Final success.
