 With a gritty Australian A-League Grand Final between Sydney FC and Perth Glory standing at 0-0 after 120-minutes of tense action, Sydney FC goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne would become the hero of the night.

 
Saving two penalties in the nail-biting shootout that ended 4-1, the goalkeeper helped the Sydneysiders claim a record-equalling fourth A-League Championship, with his goal line dance instantly becoming part of Aussie soccer folklore.

"It's just something we have been doing to try and distract the penalty-taker. It's to try and take their mind off their routine and it's really been working, and it has proved really fruitful this year… so I'll probably stick to it."
 
Heaping praise on Redmayne and the team's performance, the Sydney FC head coach said the win was a great feeling.

"It was always going to be a little bit nervy come the end at the penalty shootout, but you know, we got through, we got the win, we got the trophy and it's very satisfying."
 
Describing the 2018 to 2019 season as a "very, very emotional year", the coach said?a lot of disruption made things difficult.

"There was a lot of work to do, a lot of change, a lot of new players come into the squad and a change of coaching staff as well. We didn't have a stadium to play in, we played at three different stadiums this year. But I think the boys handled that really well."
