GOALKEEPER: Paul Izzo (Mariners) - The young custodian performed brilliantly behind an often under-siege Mariners back four, making close to 100 saves and stopping three-quarters of the shots fired at his goal.

DEFENCE: Jacob Tratt (Phoenix) - In his first season in the Hyundai A-League, the former Sydney FC squad player locked down Wellington’s right-back spot, playing every minute of the first 18 games and catching the eye in defence and on attack before family reasons forced his departure.

Dylan McGowan (Reds) - No-one featured more often this season than the Reds colossus who played every minute for his side, standing out in defence and even topping Adelaide’s goalscoring charts!
4 of 13
Andrew Durante (Phoenix) - The Phoenix skipper became the most capped outfield player in the Hyundai A-League and continued to expertly marshal the Wellington rearguard.
5 of 13
Ben Garuccio (Adelaide) - One of the real success stories at the Reds, the former City man was an aggressive, attacking menace down the left and defended stoutly.
6 of 13
MIDFIELD: Roly Bonevacia (Phoenix) - While failing to reach the consistency which saw him become one of the A-League’s most feared midfielders in the last two seasons, the Dutchman produced moments of real quality that were unequalled by anyone in 2016/17.
7 of 13
Riley McGree (Reds) - Really stepped up and gave the Reds a shot of enthusiasm and quality. Capped the season with a call-up to the Caltex Socceroos. Roly and Riley – that’s an impressive midfield duo.

WINGERS: Connor Pain (Mariners) - An ever-present threat with his pace in transition, the former Victory man revelled in his regular starting XI spot in Gosford and smashed a contender for goal of the season in Adelaide.
9 of 13
Kosta Barbarouses (Phoenix) - It took him a while to get going, but in the second half of the season the All Whites attacker showed the ability which thrilled crowds at both Brisbane and Victory and which Wellington fans will relish seeing more of in 2017/18.
10 of 13
STRIKERS: Roy O'Donovan (Mariners) - The Irishman toiled manfully in a side that provided him with far fewer opportunities than the league’s others strikers enjoyed, but still scored 11 goals in an impressive campaign.
11 of 13
Roy Krishna (Phoenix) - One of the best strikers in the entire A-League, let alone the bottom four sides, the Fijian flier used his pace, strength and ever-growing confidence to become a constant menace to opposition defences. The two Roys up front would be an awesome sight.
