Seagulls swarming in the AFL


This article was originally published by on September 16, 2020.  


In the 2018 AFL draft and signing period, the VFL’s Williamstown Football Club produced four draftees – Ben Cavarra (Western Bulldogs), Lachie Schultz (Fremantle), Brett Bewley (Fremantle) and Michael Gibbons (Carlton).


That number expands to five if you include former North Melbourne rookie Tom Wilkinson, who spent time with the Seagulls’ development program.


Showcasing VFL-listed talent and preparing them to make the jump to the elite level is the end product. The Seagulls want to ensure, during their recruiting process, they have not just talented players but people with good character as well.


Seagulls coach Andrew Collins, who won three premierships with Hawthorn during his 212-game playing career, said it was one of the first things he looked at when he took over the reins ahead of the 2014 season.
