THE Carlton Football Club is pleased to announce promising defender Brodie Kemp has signed a new two-year deal with the Club.

Keeping him at IKON Park until at least the end of 2023, the signing demonstrates the Club’s belief in the 20-year-old, who made his debut this season following an injury-interrupted start to his AFL career.

Selected at pick No.17 in the 2019 NAB AFL Draft, Kemp overcame knee, back and ankle injuries to get his chance at reserves level in May this year, before earning his first senior call up in Round 22.

Carlton Head of List Management Nick Austin was pleased that the Club was able to secure Kemp for at least the next two seasons.

“Brodie has certainly had his fair share of curveballs thrown at him in the early stages of his career, but his commitment and resilience to overcome those setbacks has been a terrific show of his character and that resilience has set him up really well for the next phase of his career,” Austin said.
