Season Summary: 1970

  

The club began the decade back in the top flight of VFA football after a dominant 1969 campaign which saw them rise as Division Two premiers. Fans and the club alike were looking forward to a prolific season which would see Williamstown rise as one of the strongest clubs in the country again.

 

After success in the previous season, Williamstown's list remained much the same with a few handy inclusions although coach Max Papley believed it was the players believing in themselves which was the overriding factor in his team's ability to turn the club around. The club put in another fantastic season, winning 13 of their 18 games, getting all the way to the grand final before being defeated by Prahran to the tune of 50 points.

 

In the short history of the VFA's divisional system, Williamstown became the first club to be promoted from the second division and then in the following season, compete in the division one grand final.
