In 1928-29, under four different managers (Sedlacek, Fernando Saraceni, Augusto Rangone and Ferenc Molnár), Lazio finished 8th and gained access to the following year's first single Serie A competition. Lamon had a good season and scored 9 goals (including winners against Ambrosiana and Juventus).

In 1930 he returned to Lazio for a season. Lazio had a decent season and finished 8th. Managers came and went: Molnár to Cesare Migliorini to Amilcar. Lamon played 18 league games but with no goals.

In 1931 he joined Robur (Siena) in the first division (below Serie A). He played 15 games and scored 1 goal. Robur came 9th in the E group.
