CARLTON Football Club has today completed a trade with the Adelaide Football Club, boosting its stocks for the upcoming NAB AFL National Draft.

The Blues have acquired pick 10, pick 16, pick 73 and Adelaide’s future second-round selection, in exchange for 28-year-old Bryce Gibbs, pick 77 and its future second and third-round picks.

Gibbs departs Ikon Park after 11 seasons in the navy blue and 231 games. 

GM of List Management and Strategy Stephen Silvagni farewelled Gibbs and thanked the midfielder for his services to the Carlton Football Club. 

“We feel we have reached a deal that is in the best interests of the Carlton Football Club and in doing so, Bryce returns to his home state,” Silvagni said.  

“We now currently hold picks 3, 10 and 16 which was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up as a side continuing to build its depth.  

“We wish Bryce, fiancée Lauren and their son Charlie the best for their future endeavours.” 

Carlton currently holds pick 3, 10, 16, 40, 58 and 73 leading into the 2017 NAB AFL National Draft.
