Perhaps you were strolling down Lygon street on Tuesday and noticed a group of Carlton footballers dressed from head to toe in their full playing kit?

Fear not, your eyes weren't playing tricks on you!

As punishment for losing their weekly intra-club tournament, a lucky few were forced to pull-up their socks and don the Navy Blue guernsey for everyone to see.

There were many a double-take from stunned passers by, as some wondered whether a pre-season football match may be taking place nearby.

However as the Carlton Football Club and Lygon Street are inextricably linked, for many a Blues supporter is was a welcome sight.
