At the same meeting, Wonthaggi joined the GL after dominating the Alberton Football League during the past decade. The Power made five consecutive Alberton Grand Finals winning three, losing only to Yarram (2007) and Stony Creek (2009).
Wonthaggi Power Football Club is a result of a merger between Wonthaggi Blues, a former Gippsland FL team, and Wonthaggi Rovers, an Alberton FL team. In February, the Gippsland Football League announced that Wonthaggi would be changing their uniforms, because their original one was similar to that of Warragul.
