The Blues have added classy midfielder Sam Petrevski-Seton to their list, selecting the young talent with pick No.6 in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft.

The silky mid, that can also play at half-forward and kick a goal or two, is an exceptional user of the ball – on both feet!

The 18-year-old, who is related to Jack Martin from the Suns, has made tackling and forward pressure key features of his game.

Growing up in Western Australia, Petrevski-Seton played his first game of senior footy at the age of 13 for the Halls Creek Hawks in the East Kimberley Football League, before moving to Perth and representing Claremont.

At the AFL under-16 championships he was twice named the best and fairest player and in 2015 was included in the under-18 All-Australian team as a bottom-aged player.

  Carlton’s General Manager of List Management and Strategy Stephen Silvagni says Petrevski-Seton has elite ball skills.

“As a midfielder Sam has terrific speed and possesses exceptional skills with the footy,” Silvagni said.

“It’s obvious from meeting with him that he’s also of great character – a really determined and resilient young man.”

Injuries interrupted his 2016 campaign, so there’s no doubt he’ll be looking to play consistent footy next season.

Welcome, Sam!
