Roar's Young wins fans' save of the season
The goalkeepers came up with a string of spectacular saves during the Hyundai A-League 2018/19 Season but the fans have voted for Jamie Young’s effort against Perth Glory in Round 3 as the best.
The Roar custodian pulled off a spectacular double stop to keep out two point-blank headers in the space of a couple of seconds from Glory’s Andy Keogh.
And in a pretty hot field, it was a clear fan favourite.
The former Wycombe Wanderers gloveman received 55% of the fan vote, to easily take the gong ahead of Adelaide United custodian Paul Izzo for his reflex stop, also against Glory, in Round 4.
Sydney FC’s Andrew Redmayne was third with 9% for his last-gasp stop against Adelaide United in Round 13, followed by Melbourne Victory’s Lawrence Thomas (6%) against the Wanderers in Round 11.
Fans were given the chance to vote for their favourite save from the 2018/19 Season in a poll launched at the end of last month.
