Carlton is delighted to have secured the talents of Sarah Last, a tall running defender who is coming off an amazing VWFL season for Bendigo. Although she’s relatively new to the game, having hailed from a netball/basketball background, her performance this year played a significant role in Bendigo reaching the 2016 grand final. Senior women’s coach Damien Keeping says Last has plenty of natural ability and a fierce competitive streak. “Sarah’s knack to read the ball in flight is matched by her brutal competitiveness,” Keeping said. Last will be sure to leave a ‘lasting’ impression on Blues fans.

Sarah Last ruptured her anterior cruciate ligament during ROund 2 clash against Adelaide at Thebarton Oval. The knee injury will sideline the 22-year-old for the remainder of the season. Senior AFLW coach Damien Keeping said the season-ending injury was disappointing, and the Club would closely support Last through her recovery. “Unfortunately, Sarah will need a knee reconstruction which will put her out for the next 12 months,” Keeping said. “We will get the support network that the Club offers around her and look to get her back in the navy blue next season."

Blues lose key defensive duo
Scans have confirmed Carlton defender Sarah Last has ruptured her anterior cruciate ligament during Sunday’s AFLW Round 3 clash against Adelaide at Thebarton Oval. The knee injury will sideline the 22-year-old for the remainder of the season. Senior AFLW coach Damien Keeping said the season-ending injury was disappointing, and the Club would closely support Last through her recovery. “Unfortunately, Sarah will need a knee reconstruction which will put her out for the next 12 months,” Keeping said. “We will get the support network that the Club offers around her and look to get her back in the navy blue next season." Marquee player Brianna Davey was also sent for scans following the Round 3 contest after a knock to her lower back. The injury is expected to keep the versatile defender on the sidelines for at least the next two weeks. “Bri Davey took a knock to her lower back and subsequently sustained a lower back injury. Unfortunately, that will keep her off the field for about two weeks,” Keeping said. The Blues’ AFLW side will battle it out at 11:35am this Saturday, while the AFL side will follow in a Demons double-header at Casey Fields in the JLT Community Series. - Grace Phillips, Carlton Media

At the end of the 2018 AFLW season the Blues delisted Laura Attard, Madeline Keryk, Sarah Last and Kate Shierlaw from their primary playing list.
