Season Summary: 1963
The early 1960's was a controversial time for Victorian football, and 1963 would be no different with the relationship between the VFA and VFL continually becoming strained.
One major cause of the fall out was due to VFL clubs looking to take over some VFA football grounds.
On the field, the Seagulls were having their own battles, with the club finishing 7th and winning just six games from 18.
Potentially still reeling from the experienced losses of Ray Smith and Jack Evans, the Seagulls slumped to their worst season since 1938, and it's run of ten consecutive finals appearances was ended.
