Season Summary: 1971

  

After the promising previous season, the club was dealt a major blow with captain/coach Max Papley deciding to call time on his illustrious playing career at the club due to persistent hamstring problems. However, he did remain as full-time head coach.

 

With new captain Ken Barnes at the helm, the Towners ambition to make a charge at another premiership unfortunately never came to fruition, winning just six games and narrowly avoiding relegation to the second division by just percentage.

 

The Seagulls finished in ninth place on the ladder, with a 6-12 record..
