Former Seagull claims third AFL premiership

Former Williamstown player Kane Lambert earned his third AFL premiership medallion at the weekend when Richmond secured its third flag in four years with a 31-point win over Geelong at the historic Gabba grand final. 

 

But the success didn’t end there, with the 28-year-old claiming the club’s Francis Bourke Award determined by Richmond’s current playing group. 

 

It outlines Lambert’s selfless, team-first persona - traits he has always shown.  

 

The crafty, hard-running mid-forward joined the Seagulls in 2014 and played 16 games and kicked 21 goals, immediately making an impact and building lifelong connections with his teammates.

 

A stand out performance came in the semi-final win over Werribee, where Lambert collected 32 disposals, 17 clearances, 15 inside 50s and kicked four goals - three of which coming amongst a nine-unanswered-goal Williamstown onslaught in a memorable last quarter fightback. 

 

 

The Tigers later that year swooped, selecting him with pick 46 in the rookie draft. 

 

Three years later he would enjoy Richmond’s drought-breaking premiership, and is now a part of one of the great modern AFL dynasties, playing 110 games, kicking 67 goals, finishing runner-up in the Tigers' best and fairest award in 2018 and third in 2017 and being included in the 2018 All-Australian squad. 

 

Williamstown is proud of the recent success of Seagulls taking the path through to the AFL system and looks forward to hopefully seeing more top-tier success to come.
