Season Summary: 1977

  

1977 was the centenary year of the VFA, but the return to top flight football was not met with the upmost of confidence due to a lack of finances for the club to acquire new players.

 

Unfortunately, the writing was on the wall very early in the campaign and relegation was inevitable with the side unable to keep up with the rest of the competition, staring down the barrel of a long stint in the second division.

 

The Seagulls would finish with a 2-16 win-loss record, and were relegated back down to second division.

 

Captain/coach Mal Allen departed at the end of the season, along with Greg Boxall (1971-1977  88 games, 170 goals, 1976 Premiership Player) and Bob Percy (1969-1977 135 games, 67 goals, 1976 Premiership Player)
