Season Summary: 1999

  

The Seagulls again won eight and lost 10 games in 1999, but in far different circumstances. This time they made a cracking start by winning the opening four games under new coach, former Geelong and Brisbane star, Andrew Bews, but then managed only one win in the next eight encounters. Apart from a six-point loss to Coburg, most of the other defeats were by substantial margins.

After round 16 the 'Town had managed just two wins out of the previous 12 although success against Box Hill and Preston in the last two games eased the disappointment of not fulfilling the initial promise shown by the team. The undoubted highlight of the year was the form of David Round, who won the club best and fairest only ten years after his father, Barry, had last won the award. Danny Del Re again took out the goal-kicking honours for the year with a total of 49. Long-serving president Trevor Monti also began his reign in 1999.
