|V/AFL Clubs||South Melbourne|
Heftily built, Harold Lampe was a formidable player who gave South Melbourne solid, consistent service, initially as a forward, but later, and mainly, as a backman, in 135 VFL games between 1899 and 1907, during which he booted 57 goals. He hailed from Wagga Wagga, and was selected to represent the VFL in 1901. His last game for the red and whites was the losing grand final of 1907 against Carlton, in which, playing in a back pocket, he produced a performance of typical authority and determination.
