Much-loved clubman Sam Rowe headlines a list of four players delisted by Carlton today.

Rowe arrived at the Blues via pick 44 in the 2011 National Draft and played 99 games across his seven year career.

The 30-year-old was crowned the Blues Most Improved Player Award in 2014 and was elevated to the leadership group in 2015.

The Blues have also delisted Jed Lamb, Sam Kerridge and Nick Graham.

Graham was traded to Carlton from the Giants at the end of 2015. He played 44 games for the Blues, including 18 in 2018.

Lamb has been invited to train with the training group at the start of pre-season in the attempt to be rookie listed by the Blues.

Arriving at Carlton at the end of 2015 from the Adelaide Crows, Kerridge recorded 42 games for the Blues, while Graham played 48 senior matches across six seasons at the Blues.

Head of Football Brad Lloyd thanked the players for their service to the Club.

“On behalf of the Carlton Football Club I’d like to sincerely thank Sam, Jed, Sam and Nick for their contribution, commitment and professionalism throughout their time at the Blues,” Lloyd said.

“Sam Rowe has been a wonderful player and clubman since he arrived at the Club and has overcome his fair share of adversity in that time. The perseverance and resilience he’s shown has made a tremendous impact on our developing playing group.

“Jed and Sam Kerridge are both terrific young men and have been valuable contributors to the side since arriving at Ikon Park at the end of 2015.

“As a respected member of the squad, Nick has consistently held himself to high standards around the club and has always played his role for the team.”
