Williamstown FC & Western Jets FC Aligned Partners
The Williamstown and Western Jets Football Club's are aligned partners through AFL Victoria and the VFL and TAC Cup Competitions. The two clubs share offices in Newport and over the years have formed a fantastic partnership.
Last season the Williamstown Football Club won both the Peter Jackson VFL Premiership and the AFL Victoria Development League Premiership in what was an unbelievable achievement for a standalone Club. In those Premiership sides their were 9 former or current Western Jets players who played in the Development Grand Final and in the VFL side there were six former Jets players who received premiership medallions.
On the VFL list in 2016 for the Seagulls are 15 ex Western Jets players making up around 30% of the entire VFL Squad. In addition to this three current Western Jets players will get the opportunity to represent the Williamstown Seniors as the 23rd player this season.
Perhaps the greatest success story of the Jets/Seagulls alignment is current Williamstown Vice Captain Cameron Lockwood. Cameron an ex Western Jets player won two Barry Round Medal's as the best and fairest player at the Jets in his 17th and 18th year. Cam has gone on to play 114 senior matches for Williamstown, has won a best and fairest award, is a premiership player and is Vice Captain of the Club.
The two clubs look forward to the next success story which will not be too far away.
