Ifill makes A-League season team

5:55 am on 29 March 2012

Wellington Phoenix striker Paul Ifill and captain Andrew Durante have been voted into the Professional Footballers Association's A-League Team of the Season by their fellow players.

Ifill is one of three strikers selected - along with Brisbane Roar's Besart Berisha and Melbourne Victory's Archie Thompson - while Durante would be on the substitute's bench.

Ifill says there's nothing better than being selected by your peers.

It has been a difficult season for Ifill who had a tough start through injuries, but battled through to again show he is one of the best players in the competition.

The Phoenix play Sydney in their A-League play-off match in Wellington tomorrow night.
