ROBBIE Younis scored the crucial goal as Bonnyrigg White Eagles won the National Premier Leagues NSW Men's 1 grand final 1-0 against Rockdale City Suns at Centrebet Stadium, Penrith on Sunday.
Younis's goal in the seventh minute proved the difference between the two sides.
He scored after the Rockdale City Suns defence failed to clear a ball from a corner. Younis rammed home the goal from inside the penalty area.
Alexander Mansueto who replaced the suspended Nikola Zonjic had an outstanding game to collect the Robbie Slater Award for man of the match.
It was a happier occasion this time for the Eagles, who were defeated by Marconi Stallions in last year's grand final after winning the premiership.
A crowd of 8000 turned out for the grand final and the army of Bonnyrigg White Eagles fans celebrated the victory at full-time.
White Eagles coach Brian Brown was ecstatic.
"I am very happy indeed," Brown said.
"It has been a great season. The playing group is a phenomenal one and I am so very proud of each of the players and the club as a whole.
"The difference today between the two sides was Robbie Younis. He's one of the best strikers going around.
"It was relatively close after that, so full credit to Rockdale City Suns for their efforts."
Brown will take a holiday before planning starts for next year.
