Sam Lloyd Biography

Tuesday, 15 December 2020
Sam Lloyd announces his shock retirement from AFL despite having a year to run on his contract.

"I've thought long and hard about this decision over the last few weeks and months, and have come to the realisation that the time is right for me to hang up the boots," Lloyd said.

"I have a chance to pursue some exciting business opportunities outside of the football industry, and I'm keen to take on a different challenge.

"Playing AFL has been an amazing experience, and I'm proud of what I've achieved on the field. My journey wasn't conventional, but I'm just honoured to have played at the highest level."

Sam Lloyd will be playing for the Western Bulldogs in 2019 according to his manager Robbie D'Orazio.

"He's just one that's probably the unluckiest player in the AFL this year," D'Orazio said.

"He's been the 23rd man most weeks at Richmond, who were obviously on top of the ladder for most of the year."

Friday, 16 February 2018
Sam Lloyd expresses disappointment at missing out on the Tigers' premiership in 2017 and hopes putting his hand up for a midfield role will result in more senior opportunities in 2018.

"I've moved into the midfield this pre-season and although it's a long list of blokes to get in front of, I'm certainly trying to put my (best) foot forward," he said.

"Probably the motivation is to get into a premiership-winning side and as much as we were all a part of it, I wasn't on the ground and playing.

"I thought I was playing as good footy as I ever have in the VFL, but I think we had one injury towards the end of last year and everyone was playing really good footy.

"I was trying to knock down the door and it wouldn't open."

"While our overall season has been disappointing, we've been really pleased with the performances of both Sam and Shaun over the course of the season," Tigers general manager of football Dan Richardson said.

"Sam has worked incredibly hard since the start of pre-season to improve his fitness and ensure he has an impact across four quarters, which has been noticeable in games.

"Shaun's had his most consistent year since arriving at Richmond. His ruck work is continuously improving and we've seen him having more of an impact around the ground as well.

"We're looking forward to both Sam and Shaun building on the progress they've made this season and taking their game to another level next season."

"I've just got to keep working on that consistency of my pressure and that'll keep me in the side."

"I'll admit I thought I should have played, but I've got to keep working so I'm definitely there this season if we play finals."
