Blueseum - Online Carlton Football Club Museum



Ron Auchettl (pronounced 'Ocker-tell') was a journeyman flanker who filled various roles at Carlton from 1966 to ’69 after being recruited from Merlynston in Melbourne’s north.

Ron’s time at Princes Park coincided with the legendary recruiting spree of the Barassi era, so he found himself part of one of the most talented player groups ever assembled by the Blues. This limited his opportunities, but his persistence still brought him 17 senior appearances and 8 goals in four seasons, including Carlton's 29 point loss to Geelong in the 1967 Preliminary Final.

Within the Blueseum you will find thousands of pictures and video clips of the players, the people, the games and the grounds that have made the Old Dark Navy Blues of Carlton one of Australia’s greatest sporting clubs.

There are lots of historically significant shots as well, like this wonderful 2001 image of a young Jack Silvagni at training with his dad, Carlton’s Full-Back of the Century, Stephen Silvagni.

Since 2006, this website has been produced by a dedicated group of volunteers who spend their free time delving into and recording the history of the Carlton Football Club.

Therefore, everyone interested is cordially invited to join us. No experience is necessary, because you’ll be guided every step of the way and you will be making a real contribution to your club.
