Numbers revealed

Jack honours family tradition Jack Silvagni spoke to Carlton Media after taking up the number one guernsey, made famous by his father and grandfather.

Continuing the family tradition, Jack Silvagni will continue his career in the Blues’ famous No.1 guernsey.

Previously worn by father Stephen and grandfather Serge, the number was vacated by Andrew Walker following his retirement this year.

The 18-year-old said he was thrilled to continue a proud family tradition in the navy blue guernsey.  

“The No.1 guernsey is obviously really significant to our family so I always thought that one day if I had the opportunity to pull it on, I would take that with both hands,” Silvagni said.

“'Walks' (Andrew Walker) actually approached the Club about his guernsey going to me and the Club then asked Dad (Stephen).

“Dad and my Nonno (Serge) presented me with the jumper in Italy recently with my mum and Nonna watching on. It was very special. It is a real privilege to wear the No.1 guernsey."

The tradition lives on. #BoundByBlue
