Season Summary: 1978

Following along from the club's recent tradition of employing captain/coaches came the signing of former Essendon player & 1976 premiership member, John Fanning.

It would be one of the darkest seasons for the football club with limited funds, disgruntled players and a board on the verge of leaving the club for dead.

The season saw Williamstown set a very unforgettable record where they recorded the worst season for a team freshly relegated to second division, finishing with three wins and 15 losses.
