Season Summary: 1991

The membership of the VFA continued to diminish in 1991, as more clubs departed the league with the struggling Camberwell withdrawing shortly before the start of the season and Brunswick quitting after the first three rounds. This caused a redraw for the 12 remaining clubs, the fewest in the Association since 1950. Williamstown, for the first time in seven seasons, failed to reach the finals. After a sound win against Springvale in the opening game, the Seagulls lost five of the next six and eventually finished seventh with only eight wins, nine losses and a draw.

Rover Ghazi was the club's leading goalkicker with 31, whilst Rickman managed just 29 in an indifferent season. Ghazi's was the lowest total by a Williamstown player for 26 years. Veteran Bill Swan added further note to his career by winning the club best and fairest award, an honour he had shared with Round two years earlier.
