THE team is in for Round 1 of the VFL season. 

Carlton Reserves will kick off their 2021 VFL campaign tomorrow afternoon at IKON Park, with nine AFL-listed players rounding out the selections. 

Lochie O'Brien, Sam Philp, Sam Ramsay, Will Setterfield and Liam Stocker are among the names who will feature among the Blues' midfield mix.

David Cuningham will make his return from concussion in attack, with draftee Corey Durdin, Josh Honey and Matt Owies to provide the AFL-listed support.

Having kicked multiple goals in all of his VFL practice matches to date, sharpshooter Ben Crocker will be a focal point inside 50, while new recruit Alex Mirkov will handle the ruck duties. 

Co-captains Ryley Stoddart and Matt Shannon will lead out the Carlton Reserves side for the first time, with Stoddart holding up the defensive line and the versatile Shannon to lead in any area of the ground.
