Season Summary: 1993

Williamstown went into season 1993 without key forward Jack Aziz, who had crossed to Werribee and where he was destined to head the VFA goalkicking and lead his new club to the premiership that year, in a spiteful clash with Port Melbourne. Round, in his eighth year with the club, coached the team for the fifth consecutive season. In finishing ninth of the 12 clubs with seven wins and eleven losses, the Seagulls had dropped seven rungs on the ladder from 1992. There was an encouraging rally mid-season when the 'Town won four out of five games, but in losing the last four games surrendered any belated chance of reaching the final five. Andy Howlett won the best and fairest while Ghazi with 38 was the Seagulls leading scorer.

Season 1993 marked the end of the playing days at Williamstown of Ian Rickman, Brett McTaggart and Billy Swan, while Round announced after the last game that he would be stepping down. Rickman had kicked 516 goals in 146 games, placing him third on Williamstown's list of all-time aggregate goalkickers, behind only Ron Todd (672) and Mark Fotheringham (571). Swan played 83 games with the Seagulls to complete 300 in the VFA.
