“ Sam was Great! He arrived just after lunch and stayed around until the show. He was happy to have a chat with anyone - he really appealed to such a broad crowd ….men, ladies, various ages ,everyone thought he was great! He was humorous, interesting and his stories were just fantastic he really calls a spade a spade. I think it would have to be one of the best shows we have had!”

Sam was our last speaker for the day and he left an impression that people as still talking about. Upon meeting Sam he was very easy to engage with and signed 2 jumpers for us to Auction off later on after he spoke. Sam’s thesaurus of the english language had the crowd in stitches, with a captured audience of various ages. Sam spoke about his life growing up, footy and meeting Donald Trump. The Lamb ambassador didn’t hold back on opinions which the crowd loved. We would like to thank Sam for helping North Footscray Football Club raise much needed funds and would welcome him back at any time.
