Sydney FC’s Alex Brosque has finished third in the running for Philips Sports Dad of the Year award, being pipped at the post by NRL star Anthony Minichiello and hockey player Jamie Dwyer.
In the Award’s sixth year, Sydney FC star and Australian Marquee Alex Brosque was fighting for the Hyundai A-League as he looked to out-do Australia’s footballing codes to become Philips Sports Dad of the Year.
Brosque finished as the best performing football player to have entered the competition, attracting 13% of the overall votes, more than previous Hyundai A-League stars Archie Thompson, Steve Corica and Brett Emerton garnered when they were entered in the award.
“Alex is the best performing football player since the inaugural Philips Sports Dad of the Year,” said Sports Dad of the Year’s Paul Masluk.
“He was very well supported.”
Brosque was pleased with the overall result having beaten the likes of the Australian cricketer Shane Watson; Luke Hodge and Brent Harvey from the AFL and the NRL’s Matt Ballin, Ryan Hoffman and Mark Minichiello.
“I’m really happy with where I finished,” he said.
“Thank you to everyone who voted for me. To be the most popular footballer to have been in the comp is a very big honour for both me and the club.
“I love being a dad every day and that is a reward in itself.”
Sydney FC would like to thank everyone who voted for Alex including their Members and esteemed sponsors.
