Carlton vice-captain Kade Simpson has become the Blues' new night series/pre-season games record holder.

The evergreen defender recently surpassed the previous record of 27 games held by club greats Craig Bradley and Scott Camporeale, finishing with 29 at the end of the 2017 JLT Community Series.

Among those games were the Blues’ 2005 and 2007 pre-season premierships.

Simpson, who turns 33 in May, finished second behind Sam Docherty in the 2016 John Nicholls Medal and currently sits eighth overall for total Carlton games with 264.

Despite being the Blues’ oldest current player, he hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down in 2017, averaging the second-most disposals (27) for Carlton during the JLT Community Series.
