Wangaratta product Scott Williamson was one of a number of players who headed West only briefly after being drafted in the early days.
West Coast careerEdit
After being picked up in West Coast's first draft in 1988, Williamson was billeted with Chris Waterman's family and allocated to East Perth. He played a handful of games with the Royals' colts before pulling the pin and heading back to Victoria.
Williamson was picked up by Melbourne in the 1990 pre-season draft, but played just three reserves games for the Demons as he concentrated on his university studies.
Williamson went on to have a successful country footy career, winning flags in the Ovens & Murray League with Rovers, with Lakes Entrance in the East Gippsland League and with North Wangaratta in the Ovens & King League.
