Matthew Wright re-signs with Carlton

Carlton’s Matthew Wright has signed a one-year contract extension with the club.

Wright played all 22 games for the Blues this season, after being picked up as a delisted free agent at the end of 2015, after six seasons and 94 games with the Crows.

“Ahead of another pre-season, it’s great to have put pen to paper with the Club who took a chance on me last year,” Wright said.

“I just tried to make the most of my opportunities this season and my teammates and coaches have been really supportive.

“The culture we are establishing at the Club is really strong and I’m excited about another year with this group under ‘Bolts’ as we continue to develop and build on our foundations.”

Wright led the Blues’ goal kicking in 2016, with 22 goals.
