A host of players remain hopeful for an AFL contract ahead of the 2021 season as clubs continue to assess train-on players during the pre-season supplemental selection period.

Former Magpie and Crow Ben Crocker has been invited to train with Carlton, per AFL Media’s Riley Beveridge.

Despite having just one list spot available, Carlton also have former Demons defender Oscar McDonald, axed forward Callum Moore and Murray Bushrangers product Zavier Maher training at Ikon Park.

Beveridge also reports that ex-Eagle Alec Waterman is closing in on a list spot at Essendon, while Hawthorn has invited former Williamstown player Lachie Bramble to its train-on list.

Other players who have recently begun training with clubs include Majak Daw (Melbourne) and Jordan Gallucci (Richmond).

Collingwood, Adelaide and North Melbourne are also hosting train-on players whilst holding just one available spot.

Players are able to be selected for pre-season games, with clubs having the option to sign prospects until March 9 or via the mid-season rookie draft on June 2.
