Lambe made his league debut in Ipswich Town's victory over Middlesbrough at Riverside Stadium on 7 August 2010, replacing Carlos Edwards in the 64th minute.

He was put on waivers by Toronto FC on 5 March 2014.[10]

After being waived by Toronto FC, Lambe joined Nyköpings BIS of Sweden's Division 1 Norra. Over three months, Lambe made twelve appearances for the club, scoring one goal before leaving. After leaving Nyköpings, Lambe had a short trial with Mansfield Town before officially signing for the club for the 2014–2015 season on 17 September 2014.[11] Three days later, Lambe was named to the lineup as a substitute for Mansfield Town's league match against Carlisle United.[12] Lambe went on to debut for the club in the match, coming on as a 74th-minute substitute for Fergus Bell.[13]

Lambe joined League Two rivals Carlisle United in June 2016.[14] He scored on his debut in a 1–1 draw with Portsmouth on 6 August 2016.[15]
