THE Carlton Football Club has today confirmed that Jack Carroll has extended his contract with the Blues for a further two years.
Carroll was the youngest player taken in the 2020 NAB AFL Draft when he was selected from the East Fremantle Football Club as a 17-year-old.
His first season saw him emerge as a rising talent at VFL level, managing 25 disposals in his third game and backed up with 24 disposals in his fifth outing for the Carlton Reserves.
The 188cm midfielder hails from the East Fremantle Sharks, where Patrick Cripps also played junior football, and now wears the same number his captain wore during his first season at IKON Park: No. 16.
Carlton Head of List Management Nick Austin believes Carroll is starting to show significant progress at the right time.
“Jack is performing well in the VFL and we couldn’t be happier with his progression since joining our club. Another year of fully immersing himself in an AFL program is only going to help him take his game to the next level,” Austin said.
“He is constantly striving to be better, working with the coaches to achieve maximum results on and off the field and his work rate is second to none.
“We are pleased that Jack will continue his growth as a Carlton player over the next two years and look forward to seeing what he can achieve in that time.”
