Sam Simpson

Date of Birth: 14/06/1998

Club: Geelong FC

Games (Goals): 6 (2)

Recruited From: 2016 NAB AFL Draft, from Geelong Falcons (TAC Cup)


Sam burst onto the scene for the Geelong Falcons in 2016 playing some exceptional footy early in the season which put him right on the Cats radar as a possible father son selection.

The son of Sean, who played over 100 games for the Cats from 1991 – 1998, Sam has been a late developer having enjoyed playing his footy locally as well as for St Joseph’s before being listed in 2016 by the Falcons.

A crafty forward who hits the scoreboard and gets into dangerous spots, Sam also pushes into the midfield. With still only a slight frame, Sam will benefit from an AFL pre season heading into his first senior season with the Cats.
