Fitzroy's George 'Snowy' Lambert made an extremely impressive start to his VFL career, but never quite fulfilled his early promise. He joined the Maroons in 1909 from Abbotsford, and was soon playing with the aplomb of a veteran. He ended up sharing his club's best and fairest award that year with Bill Walker. Over the ensuing eight seasons, Lambert found himself in and out of Fitzroy's senior team, and although he performed serviceably at times, he lacked the consistency to be regarded as a top player. Most of his 107 league games were played on a half back flank. Unfortunately for Lambert, he was not selected in either the 1913 or 1916 premiership teams.
