2022 draftees Jaxon Binns and Harry Lemmey have extended their time in navy blue with the club confirming the news on Friday.

The pair have signed two-year and one-year extensions respectively, now penned until the end of the 2026 and 2025 seasons.

Despite neither player having yet to make their AFL debut, they have shown promising signs in the VFL, contributing to a successful season for the Carlton side.

Binns impressed many during his time with the Dandenong Stingrays, earning the 32nd selection in the 2022 AFL draft. The 18-year-old has been noted for his endurance, finishing third in the Blues' pre-season 2km time trial

The midfielder is continuing to push AFL selection averaging 28.6 disposals over 13 VFL games. Binns has been forced to wait for his name to be called, joining a waiting list behind a group of stacked midfielders in Carltons' AFL side.

Now signing a two-year extension, Binns will hope to crack the senior side during their push to end their post-season drought.

Key forward Lemmey was drafted to Carlton from West Adelaide with pick No.47. With proven athleticism and clean hands, Lemmey has been eager to learn and improve during his time at the Club.

Lemmy earned his AFL draft selection after his showcase with West Adelaide in 2022. The key forward is also making his case to play AFL after some encouraging early season performances.

Standing at over 200cm, Lemmey has proven to be a threat as a part-time ruck averaging 9.2 hit-outs in the past five games.

Carlton Head of List Management Nick Austin is optimistic that Binns and Lemmey will play roles in the future of the club.

“We are pleased to see Jaxon and Harry continue as Carlton players for the coming years. The re-signing is a testament to the drive and hard-work they put in at training, which has been reflected in their great seasons in the VFL so far,” Austin said.

“We are glad we have been able to establish a development program here for our younger players that allows them to see their long-term futures at the football club.

“Jaxon is a running machine who has had an immediate impact in the run and carry of the VFL side. Being named as emergency for a few games, he will continue to push for selection in the back half of the season and we look forward to further supporting and mentoring him both on and off the field.

“Harry has shown real promise since his start at Carlton. Having Harry McKay and Charlie Curnow to learn and grow his craft from has been huge for his development and we look forward to seeing him develop further over the next two years.”

The duo's decision to sign on adds to the prior retention of fellow 2022 draftees Lachie Cowan and Oliver Hollands.
