FOUR changes, including a 2024 return. 

Carlton has named its team to take on Melbourne tomorrow night, with Jack Martin named for his first game of the season. 

Martin is one of four additions to the Navy Blue fold as he comes back from respective knee and hamstring injuries which interrupted his pre-season. 

He returns alongside Mitch McGovern, with the important defender to play his first game in a month after an injury sustained against former side Adelaide. 

After being managed from all action last weekend, Ollie Hollands returns to the senior side, while Brodie Kemp is also recalled. 

Kemp was one of the Blues’ best last weekend in the Carlton Reserves, recording 25 disposals and a game-high 13 marks. 

Zac Williams won’t feature, with the defender ruled out due to glute soreness which saw him subbed out against Collingwood. Meanwhile, Caleb Marchbank will make his return via the VFL in the Carlton Reserves' Friday night clash with the Casey Demons at IKON Park.

David Cuningham, Orazio Fantasia and Lewis Young have been omitted. 

Jordan Boyd, Adam Cerra, Matthew Cottrell, Corey Durdin and George Hewett have been named on the interchange, with the Blues to name their sub an hour before the bounce.
