Riera scoops top awards at Wanderers Medal

Spanish Marquee striker Oriol Riera has capped his maiden Hyundai A-League season by taking out the Player of the Year at the Wanderers Medal in Bicentennial Park on Tuesday night. 

In what was a record-breaking campaign for the classy number nine, Riera finished up with three individual awards on a glitzy night at Waterview.

Riera finished with a club record 19 goals across all competitions, the most in a single season by a Wanderer.

As well as being named Player of the Year, which is voted by Wanderers players, Riera capped off a big night by also picking up the Wanderers Golden Boot and the Rod Allen Award: Media Player of the Year, as voted by media representatives.

Goalkeeper Vedran Janjetovic was crowned the Hyundai A-League Members’ Player of the Year for a stellar season in which he played every minute of every game.
