The Carlton Football Club has made another exciting addition to its squad during the 2020 AFLW Sign and Trade period, welcoming wing/half forward Charlotte Hammans to Ikon Park.
The Blues completed a trade with the Suns that will see Hammans wear navy blue in exchange for pick No.56 overall in the 2020 NAB AFLW draft.
The 19-year-old was one of three inaugural AFLW signings for the Gold Coast in its first season, having enjoyed a stellar junior career, as evidenced by her four goals in five games for Queensland in the 2018 National Championships and selection in the Under 18 All-Australian squad.
She was also a rising star through her school football career, winning three Queensland State Championships for South Coast.
Hammans will bring elite skill, athleticism and speed to the Game Changers in 2021.
“Charlotte is a very talented footballer who we think has some exciting potential,” Brown said.

“We believe she has all the traits to succeed at the elite level. With the experienced players we have on our list, as well as our coaching staff, we look forward to seeing Charlotte continue to develop her game and work hard make the most out of the obvious talent she has.
“Bringing Charlotte to the Club, in addition to Elise O’Dea and Maddy Guerin, we feel like we have really strengthened our playing list heading into the 2021 season.”
