THE Carlton Football Club can confirm it has completed a trade with St Kilda that will see defender Jayde Van Dyk move to Moorabbin for a swap of third-round draft picks.

The Blues move up six spots in the third round of the 2020 NAB AFLW Draft after receiving pick No.36 overall (currently No.21 in Victoria region) in exchange for Van Dyk and pick No.42 overall.

Van Dyk played nine games in the Navy Blue during her debut season in 2019, primarily down back as a lock down defender.

This year she made the one appearance, in the season opening win over Richmond.

GM of Women’s Football Ash Brown thanked Van Dyk for her time at the Club.

“We would like to thank Jayde for the service she gave to the Carlton Football Club during her two years with us. Jayde contributed positively to the growth and development of the playing group and program and we wish her all the best with the Saints,” Brown said.

“This trade now gives us four picks inside the top 25 of the Victorian region heading into the draft, which leaves us in a really strong position at the moment.”
