YOUNG midfielder Cameron Polson has re-signed with Carlton, keeping him in the Old Dark Navy Blue until at least the end of the 2020 season.
Taken with pick No. 59 in the 2016 AFL National Draft, the 20-year-old has played three AFL games since making his debut against Port Adelaide in Round 5, 2017.
Captain of Haileybury College and a product of the Sandringham Dragons, Polson has quickly adapted to the Club’s football program, both at AFL and VFL level.
Head of Football Andrew McKay said the Club was pleased to secure the signature of another young talent.
“Cam’s contract extension is well earned and a direct result of his hard work,” McKay said.

“Since arriving at Carlton he has been determined to improve all aspects of his game and learn as much as he can from his teammates, which speaks volumes about his character.
“Cam has been a strong contributor for the Northern Blues and has had a taste of senior football which he will be very driven to build on.
“We know he will continue to apply himself to work hard at his craft, and we look forward to seeing what Cam can produce on field over the coming years.”
Thankful his career will continue at the Blues, Polson said he was delighted to remain at Ikon Park.
“Carlton is a great football club and I feel very lucky and thankful to represent this jumper and play for the Blues,” Polson said.
“I’m a big believer that you get out what you put in, so when I’m at the Club I make the most of every minute and learn as much as I can from players like Marc Murphy and Patrick Cripps.
“I’m determined to maximise this opportunity and I’m excited by the direction of the football club over the next couple of years with the young playing group we have.”
