SYDNEY United 58 FC are the inaugural National Premier Leagues NSW Men's 1 Premiers after defeating Blacktown Spartans 3-1 to clinch the title on Sunday afternoon at Blacktown Football Park.
The last time United were crowned premiers was in 2009.
"It worked out, and rightly so," coach Mark Rudan said.
"I suppose the football gods were shining down upon us.
"I've said throughout the week that we were prepared and focused on doing the job and I told my players throughout the week that if we didn't win that in my mind we are the champions.
"I think, actually I don't think - we did deserve to be premiers.
"We are in my mind, over the course of the year, the best footballing side and the best side of this competition.
"There's a lot of different parts to a season and the boys certainly played their role today and throughout the course of the season and I'm just really proud of them."
With the premiership in their hands, United have a weekend off.
Rudan has encouraged his side to savour the moment before they get back down to business in a fortnight's time.
"I'm not going to think about it too much," Rudan said.
"I know we've got a week off as I understand so I've told the players that in football and throughout your career you're going to find there's going to be a lot more bad than good times so I really want the players to enjoy the good times.
"You need to enjoy the wins."
In other games, Bonnyrigg White Eagles finished third in the premiership after losing 1-0 to Marconi Stallions. The Stallions finished fifth on 37 points.
With United having a week off as champions, Bonnyrigg White Eagles play Sutherland Sharks this Sunday in the qualifying semi-final. The Stallions meet Rockdale City Suns on Saturday in the elimination game. Venues will be announced during the week.
