The six local clubs set to take part in the 2023 Carlton Draft have been revealed, with each lucky entry set to be home to a modern-day AFL great for one game this year.

The Carlton Draft initiative will take place across six separate local leagues in Victoria, with over 1700 games of AFL experience set to be shared across six grassroots sides for one-off performances to help give back to the community.

Nathan Buckley, Jordan Lewis, Josh P. Kennedy, Bernie Vince, Kane Cornes and David Mundy will all take part in the draft, which will see six clubs select one player each.

Buchan Football Netball Club (Omeo & District Football Netball League), Carngham Linton Football Netball Club (Central Highlands Football League), Maryborough Rovers Football Netball Club (Maryborough & District Football Netball League), Moyston-Willaura Football Netball Club (Mininera & District Football Netball League), Murrabit Football Netball Club (Golden Rivers Football League) and Nilma Darnum Football Netball Club (Ellenbank District Football League) have all been granted selections.

The 2023 Carlton Draft will take place on Wednesday, April 26, with the order of the count to be confirmed on the night of the draft.

"For the lucky six clubs selected to have the opportunity to draft a former AFL legend will be a sight to behold for the local community and I'm sure all of the draftees can't wait to play a role in bringing the spark back to local footy," draft commissioner Jonathan Brown said.
