Seagulls Attend Civic Reception

 

 

 

Williamstown Football Club attended a Civic Reception held in its honour by the Hobsons Bay City Council at the Williamstown Town Hall on Friday night.

 

Attended by all Councillors of Hobsons Bay, Wade Noonan MP,  representatives of local football clubs and Williamstown board members, players, staff and volunteers, the Reception was a joyful occasion as those who attended looked back on the 2015 successes of both the Senior and Development sides.

 

Councillor Angela Altair hosted the evening, regaling tales from yesteryear, while Mayor Peter Hemphill spoke about the importance of the club's success and the great connection the Seagulls have with other local sporting organisations in the area.

 

Wade Noonan MP then spoke about the reach the Club has and the sheer enjoyment he got out of the premiership successes, despite having to follow the match remotely via the Club's Twitter account.

 

President Trevor Monti and Senior Coach Andrew Collins also spoke about what the premiership success meant to the club and it's supporters, who have been through a wave of ups and downs since the Club's last premiership as a standalone entity back in 1990.

 

Players, staff and volunteers then mingled with the Councillors and others in attendance, as they begin preparations for another pre-season ahead of a big 2016 campaign.
