Season Summary: 1998

  

Traralgon, which had managed only four wins and a draw in its two seasons in the VFL, dropped out and was replaced by Bendigo in 1998. An indifferent start to the season cost Williamstown the chance of playing in the finals. With only two wins in the first eight games, the Seagulls then played consistently to win the next five.

The 'Town then had to play four of the five eventual finalists and lost every one, confirming that a finals berth was beyond them. A victory over Bendigo in the last round gave Williamstown eight wins from 18 home-and-away fixtures. Danny Del Re proved useful in attack and his 60 goals for the season was the best by a Williamstown player for six years. His fine season also earned him the club's best and fairest award.
