Wanderers claim minor Premiership
The Western Sydney Wanderers have claimed the Premiers Plate after beating Newcastle 3-nil.
The Wanderers in their first season in the A-League have finished very strongly despite a draw in the Sydney derby in the last round.
The result now means that the Central Coast Mariners will now finish second and their match against Melbourne Heart is now a dead rubber.
The Mariners won the Premiers Plate last season and for long periods this season looked like they were going to retain until the surge from the Wanderers.
The Wanderers next match will be in two weeks when they play in the semi-finals for the Grand final.
