LEGENDARY VFL coach Gerard FitzGerald will not be reappointed at the Roosters’ helm.

North Ballarat Roosters tonight released a statement via social media that the board would not extend FitzGerald’s contract, which ends this season.

“This decision sends a message of change within the club for its next stage of development as it enters the VFL as a standalone team in 2016,” the statement read.

“The board continues to review the organisation's football structure to ensure that the club is well positioned for sustained success in the VFL. The board believes that these changes will be necessary to ensure that the club can be competitive in the ever evolving VFL landscape.”

Fitzgerald has agreed to coach out the season.

Williamstown defeat Footscray in VFL

From The Age

Williamstown continue to be the pace setters in the VFL after upsetting Footscray by 39 points at Whitten Oval on Sunday.

Cameron Lockwood's goal at the 10-minute mark of the final term was a fitting blow to celebrate his 100th VFL match in style, but realistically this match should have been over much before that.

Perhaps the inaccurate Seagulls flattered the Bulldogs, winning 9.22 (76) to 5.7 (37).

Sam Darley (38 disposals) and Lachie Hunter (34) were prolific for the Bulldogs, but the damage was done on the scoreboard as the Seagulls ran rampant with Mitch Banner scoring two opportunist goals, while Andrew Galluci also snared two majors.

In a low-scoring affair for the most part – only six goals were scored in the first half – the Seagulls finally broke free early in the final term after leading by just 18 points at the last change.

Footscray have been accustomed to playing the game plan that they wanted against most teams so far this season. But two of their losses have been against formidable opponents Box Hill and Williamstown, which have excelled at shutting down the Dogs' running game.

Richmond Tigers flattened by Werribee

Richmond’s VFL squad has suffered a crushing 96-point defeat at the hands of Werribee at Avalon Airport Oval on Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers struggled to match Werribee’s intensity early, with the home side piling on six goals to one in the first quarter.

Werribee took a 32-point lead into the first break, and continued their ascendancy for the remainder of the game, keeping Richmond goalless in the third quarter.

VFL coach Tim Clarke attributed the loss to his team’s inability to gain any control of the contest.
