Williamstown



"Its greatest era came during the 1950s when it engaged in numerous memorable tussles with perennial rivals Port Melbourne, more often than not emerging on the winning side, at any rate when it really counted. Indeed, the three year period between 1954 and 1956 was, as far as Town supporters are concerned, the closest thing to heaven on earth imaginable. Each year the grand final pitted Williamstown against the Borough; each year the Borough were heavily favoured to win; and each year Williamstown defied the odds to claim the flag."

John Devaney looks back at the history of the Williamstown Football Club.
