Season Summary: 1979
Another change in leadership saw former Footscray player Merv Hobbs coach the side, meaning five coach changes in eight years for the Seagulls.
With it seemingly impossible to have a worse season than the previous one, Williamstown built steadily throughout the year and were a force to be reckoned with at home, losing just one game at Point Gellibrand for the whole year, finishing with a 12-6 record.
Williamstown booked themselves a place in the finals but unfortunately fell in the semi-final to Mordialloc. The club's thirds did bring some consolation though, winning the premiership to top off a terrific season.
