Williamstown FC Heritage Project

 

In 2015 the Williamstown Football Club announced the formation of a heritage sub-committee, comprising club stalwarts John Grieve, Alan Parker, Bruce Tait and CEO Jason Reddick.

 

The inital focus of the committee was to identify and secure club memorabilia and records since the Club's inception in 1864. 

 

Having received a large number of important and historical items, the committee is now focused on showcasing these in an appropriate manner for their prosperity.

 

The first step in this process will be a obtaining a floor-to-ceiling glass cabinet, to be placed in the foyer of Seaview Williamstown Events Centre showcasing the 16 premiership cups won by the club, in the same professional manner that many AFL clubs proudly display their premiership history.

 

To fulfill this, the club needs to purchase the 12 premiership cups preceding 1986 where cups weren't presented to the winning team. Each cup comes at a cost of $2,500 and the club has recently purchased the 1956 & 1976 premiership cups to display at the premiership reunion held on July 17.

 

However, there are a further ten cups that need to be produced and purchased, together with the cost of the trophy cabinet. $40,000 in funds needs to be raised to make this happen.

 

The second stage is to build display cabinets showcasing items such as blazers, medallions, trophies etc. and have touchscreen monitors that provide the photos and written records for the last 152 years.

 

We therefore encourage all Seagulls supporters to dig deep and make a contribution to this important project that we have established with the Australian Sports Foundation that will ensure our proud history is on display forever more.
