Carlton has added experience to its list after signing delisted free agent Matthew Wright.

The 25-year-old former Crow played 94 games for Adelaide after being recruited through the 2009 Rookie Draft.

Carlton’s General Manager of List Management and Strategy Stephen Silvagni says Wright will add to Carlton’s depth.

“Matthew is an inside midfielder-forward with clean hands who’s a good set shot and quick around the packs,” Silvagni said.

“Importantly, he’s also a quality person who will bring experience and leadership to our team.

“With Matthew, our new draftees and the players we secured through the trade period, our list is taking shape.

“We believe we’ve got some terrific talent through the door and now we’re looking forward to seeing our list grow and develop under coach Brendon Bolton.”
