The Newcastle Jets emerged as champions after defeating Thailand's Chonburi FC 4-1 in the final of the Singapore Cricket Club Soccer Sixes on Sunday.
The A-League side had fought back to beat the Singapore Under-21 side 2-1 in the semi-final, while Chonburi disposed of defending champions Courts Young Lions 1-0 in theirs.
A Taylor Regan brace and goals to Sam Gallaway and James Brown did the job for the Jets in the decider.
"Even though this is a sixes format, it still helps the team when we go on and play the eleven-a-side games," Jets coach Gary van Egmond said.
"We have a long pre-season ahead and this tournament gave our players a much-needed challenge.
"The tournament and hospitality has been great and we look forward to playing here again next year."
In support of the underprivileged homes in the region, Newcastle Jets announced that they will give away their prize money of SGD$1,500 to all teams from the Soccer Sixes Youth Category.
In the Masters category, Arsenal legend Nigel Winterburn led the CLA All-Stars to the Masters Cup title in the 5th Singapore Cricket Club (SCC) Soccer Sixes .
The former Gunners defender was in town as the ambassador of this year’s edition of Asia’s premier six-a-side tournament at the Padang, and did not disappoint as he helped the All-Stars beat SCC Strollers 1-0 in the final.
Winterburn had earlier hammered home the winning penalty in the semi-final after the All-Stars had played out a 1-1 draw with Bangkok Airways, which came on the back of a 3-0 success over Team Blondi.
