Carlton is pleased to announce the Club has signed delisted free agent Matthew Dick.

The 20-year-old former Swan is yet to make his AFL debut, but he enjoyed a solid year in the NEAFL. A 187cm tall defender, Dick spent the year playing mostly across half-back and pushing into the midfield.

Originally hailing from Victoria where he played 14 games for the Calder Cannons in the TAC Cup, Dick was recruited to Sydney with a third round draft pick in the 2012 National Draft.

Carlton’s GM – Football Operations Andrew McKay says Dick is a big-bodied player who will offer the Blues flexibility.

“It’s great to get a versatile young player like Matthew through the door, particularly coming from a strong club such as Sydney,” McKay said.

“He’s a powerful right footer with plenty of leg speed who makes good use of the football.

“Matthew only turned 20 on Monday, so his addition fits with our overall strategy to lower the age profile of our team.”
