Vitesse head coach Henk Fraser dedicated the club's first-ever trophy to their supporters following a 2-0 victory over AZ in the KNVB Cup final on Sunday.

Fraser's side overcame the Cheeseheads to end a 125-year wait for their first silverware and qualify for the Europa League.

A second-half brace from Ricky van Wolfswinkel in the second half was enough for Vitas to bring home the cup.

"To win a trophy for the first time in the club's 125-year history is very special indeed," Fraser said after the game. "To be in the final for the first time in 27 years and to qualify for Europe too.

"This also for the supporters who have deserved this and perhaps our victory in the cup this season is a surprise for them."

He added: "I managed to take the occasion in and enjoy the game. When we saw our supporters when arriving at the stadium it only served as a motivation for us.

"We have written history for Vitesse Arnhem and this is fantastic for the club and we will enjoy this."
