Vaughan Constructions have confirmed its continued support of Sam Lloyd by re-signing as his Official Player Sponsor for the 2016 season
Sam worked at Vaughan Constructions from 2011 to 2012 before heading to Frankston Dolphins to commit full time to playing AFL. In his debut season with Frankston he kicked 38 goals in 17 games. He dominated in the VFL Representative team kicking four goals against the WAFL.
Sam was drafted to the Richmond Football Club in the 2013 NAB AFL Draft
In 2014 he played 8 senior games wearing the number “42” for a return of 10 goals
In 2015 he started in the number “27” and returned 13 goals. Two of his goals finished in Richmond’s “Top Ten Goals of the year” (2nd and 10th).
This year Sam is looking to cement his position in the team. He’s now had a couple of full preseason trainings under his belt and has already proven his hard work and commitment is paying off with 3 goals from two games this year.
His elite kicking and class won RFCs first game against Carlton through his efforts in the last quarter and he almost did the same against Collingwood.
Andrew Noble, director and general manager of Vaughan Constructions said, "he’s a hard worker, gives his best, supports his team mates and is a grounded, professional and genuine good person. Sam is someone that Vaughan Constructions is very proud have our brand attached to and we’re very excited to be his ‘Official Player Sponsor’ again in 2016."
