Season Summary: 1994

With the future of the VFA very much in doubt, Williamstown went into 1994 with Mark Cross, a tough former rover from the 1970's and member of the 1976 second division premiership team, as coach and Tony Pastore as captain. Among the recruits was former Williamstown Under 19's and North Melbourne/Carlton player Mark Arceri, whose father Tony had been the 'Town president in 1975, Troy Carrick from the Under 19's, future Liston Medallist Paul Dooley, 22 year-old Troy West from West Perth and 18 year-old Brad Lloyd, younger brother of vice-captain Simon. Troy Mitchell returned after a season at Wodonga, and Phil O'Keefe transferred over from Werribee mid-season.

After losing the opening three games, the Seagulls improved to the extent that they won eight of the 18 games for the year to finish in eighth place. Troy Mitchell took out his third best and fairest award and newcomer Phil O'Keefe lead the goal-kicking at the club with a total of just 24 goals. Andrew Howlett played his 100th game for Williamstown against Frankston in round 11.
