William Milton Lamb (14 July 1909 – 21 June 2006) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Geelong in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Lamb, recruited locally from Geelong College, was a back pocket defender.[1] He played all 21 games for Geelong in 1930, including their grand final loss.[2] The following season he missed just one game all year and again featured in the grand final, this time finishing in the winning team.[2] He had been one of Geelong's best players in the 1931 Grand Final, with 13 kicks and a good defensive job of the Richmond rovers.[3]

He lived until the age of 96 and was the last surviving player from the 1931 Geelong premiership winning side.
