THE BLUES will welcome back Toby Wooller to IKON Park in 2022.
Coming off a third-placed finish in the Club’s best and fairest at season’s end, Toby Wooller has recommitted to the Carlton Reserves for another season.
Arriving for the team’s inaugural year in the competition after three seasons with the Brisbane Lions, Wooller was Carlton’s ‘Mr. Fix It’ in the 2021 VFL campaign.

Largely utilised as a forward, Wooller was no stranger to being pushed behind the ball or even into the ruck, performing his role with aplomb each and every week.
Kicking 10 goals from his eight games, Wooller is still just 22 years of age and is a valuable asset at VFL level with his willingness and capacity to play multiple roles for the team.
He formed a dynamic partnership in attack with fellow re-signing Ben Crocker, on the way to both players finishing on the podium come best-and-fairest night.

VFL Senior Coach Daniel O’Keefe said the signature of Wooller was a big boost leading into the return of pre-season next week.
“I think anyone who followed our Carlton Reserves side last season could see the value that Toby offered to our team,” O’Keefe said.
“He gave us a lot as a forward and probably through circumstance in terms of injuries and game management, we were forced to play him in a few other roles and he performed to a high standard with that.
“We love what he offers our group both on the field and off it, so to have him sign on for the upcoming year - on the eve of pre-season - is really exciting for our program.
“With Toby making it 12 players signed on from last year plus the addition of Ned Cahill, we think we’re in a really good spot and really excited to see what the group produce when we resume training from Monday.”
