Milton Lamb, who died in June 2006, was the last surviving member of Geelong's 1931 premiership team. An extremely consistent, close-checking back pocket player, he joined the Cats from Geelong College and played a total of 72 VFL games between 1928 and 1932.

In the 1931 Grand Final win over Richmond Lamb was one of the best players afield, collecting 13 kicks, and keeping a tight rein on the two Richmond rovers, Maurie Hunter and Frank Ford, whenever they were stationed in the forward pocket. Early in his career he was sometimes used at full back to good effect.
